Redcurrant jelly

 Redcurrant jelly Key facts Redcurrants are often used in Germany and Scandinavia for a wide range of preserves and desserts, including Linzertorte, which is on the site. The fruit has a similar level of sweetness to the blackcurrant, but also a sharper taste which makes it ideal to offset the richness of meat or game.

Redcurrant jelly is an invaluable ingredient for sauces, gravies or just to serve with lamb or game – but do make sure it's a good-quality one with a high fruit content, such as Tiptree: cheaper versions are far too sweet, which obliterates the real flavour of the redcurrants.
