  • 4 cups red currants, stemmed and washed
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Place the red currants in a large saucepan and crush them gently with a spoon or potato masher to release their juices.
  2. Add the granulated sugar and lemon juice to the saucepan and stir well to combine.
  3. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar.
