A trip upstate a few weekends ago quickly turned into a raspberry picking spree after we saw a sign on the side of the road advertising U-Pick berries. I knew that a batch of jam was my first order of business.
Although red currants are found in forests all over Europe, their acidic taste means that their use remains marginal, except in jams and jellies. Red currant jelly is nonetheless a great companion to game meat. It's time to make your own!
