The bright red currant sauce is great because, in addition to meat, it goes well with poultry, fish, potatoes, and even ordinary pasta. Since the berry has a characteristic sourness, the most important thing in cooking is to choose the right spices. Ideally, the sauce is very thick, rich, spicy, as well as sweet and sour.

Food blogger Kateryna Boyko shared a recipe for a spicy red currant sauce that is suitable for meat, poultry, fish and vegetables on her Facebook page.
