Smell the festive season!
To me, this relish captures the very essence of the festive season. The spices and the aromas of this relish will make your whole house smell festive. Red currant relish is the perfect accompaniment to roasted turkey, it brings out the flavours of the turkey while tremendously enhancing them with its own. It adds crunch to the texture and smoothness from the burst red currants, also moistens the meat with the reduced spiced orange juice. It is truly Divine!

On many occasions, I have roasted whole quails, then drained the relish to separate the juice from the flesh (the red currants and nuts). Tossed the roasted quails in the juice of the relish, and placed the flesh inside the cavity of the roasted quails and garnished with some of the relish flesh along with a sprinkle of finely chopped fresh parsley.
