    Excellent recipe - didn't have any redcurrants so I used cranberries which had been cooked in orange juice with sugar until they were gooey and omitted the jam. Delicious.

    Cooked this with friends and served warm as cake-type pudding with cream... so good! Substituted raspberry jam for the conserve and it was great! Didn't last long though - was polished off in one evening!
