Red Currant Hazelnut Cream Syrup for Pastries etc

Tiffany Bannworth


This sweet treat is excellent drizzled on homemade pastries. It adds a gourmet flair to any cocktail party.

You may increase the currants to your desired level, if you favor a prominent currant flavor.

I recommend this with lingonberries, as well.
