Redcurrant jelly is usually a condiment that finds its way to the dining table when Roast Lamb is on the menu. I think it is delicious when served with moist pink lamb and mint sauce.
But today I made a chance discovery. The pot of the redcurrant jelly sitting on the table had a label that clearly stated that this particular jelly was perfect on chicken. Now chicken was what was being served so I decided to give it a go.
I took a teaspoon on the clear red coloured jelly and smeared it on to the meat. I then took a bite to savour the flavour. Wow. I discovered that the flavour was transformed.
The chicken now tasted like duck. Duck. The chicken had taken on a more gamey flavour and even the texture appeared to have changed.
This is something everyone should try.
