Red Currants are a slightly tart fruit.  Many members are not familiar with them but they make a delicious sauce or we like to eat them fresh.  To make the sauce, take berries from stem and steam with a little water.  Continue to cook until the berries soften.  Strain or mash and separate the red liquid.  Add sweetener to your liking.  Continue to cook the sweetened currant juice until it gets thickened.  Pour in a container and store in the refrigerator.  It will “set” without the use of pectin.  We use this instead of cranberry sauce.  So good with poultry.
