White/Red Currant Jam

Written by nadjaelli

Did you purchase currants, which will spoil soon, but you cannot eat them all at once? This happened to me recently when I got these lovely white currants from my grandma’s garden.


What to do with them? Make white/red currant jam with sparkling wine in order to keep them from going to waste. It can be enjoyed with almond icecream or yoghurt.

For the jam you need:

  •  450 grams of white currants
  • 250 grams of canning or preserving sugar
  • 150 ml of sparkling wine
  • 3-4 preserving glasses depending on the size you choose

Wash the currants and separate them from their stipes.

Put the currants in a bowl and add the sugar, then mix the two. Add some pressure while mixing in order to churn the currants a little bit. Then let the mix stand for about 4 hours.

After 4 hours, heat up the mix in a pot until it almost starts to boil. Then, pass the mix through a sieve and mix it with the champagne in a pot. Heat up the mix with the champagne and let it boil for about 5 minutes. Then, the jam is ready and can be filled into nice glasses, which you can find at kitchen, interior or decoration stores such as the Dutch Xenos or Blokker.

CARPE DELI and enjoy!
