Recipes for making red currant sauce for the winter


The hostess is traditionally used to make preserves and jams from currant berries. I propose to move away from tradition and make red currant sauce for the winter.

Red currant sauce for the winter

We collect currants from a bush or take frozen ones from the refrigerator. We sort out fresh berries from twigs and other debris, rinse, throw them on a sieve. After the water has completely drained from the berries, grind them in a blender. We do not need bones and remnants of the skin, so we take a fine sieve and grind and weigh the berry mass.

Weight is needed to determine the rate of sugar. Sugar needs exactly half of the weight received. If you received 2 kg of puree, then 1 kg of sugar is needed.

We will cook the currant sauce in an enamel saucepan. Bring the berry mass over low heat to almost a boil, after which we begin to pour sugar into it. The mass can easily burn, in order to prevent this, it must be stirred continuously. When the sugar has dissolved, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

To make the taste richer, add spices:

  • a mixture of peppers;
  • ground cinnamon;
  • dry, chopped cloves.

We take all the spices for preparation to taste, add a little, taste. After 20 minutes of cooking, the mass should thicken, at this time pour lemon juice (25 ml) into it.
