Only two varieties of red currants can be used in this jam: the Versaillaises and the red currants from Bar.
The beveled goose quills and the dexterity of the deseeding craftsmen and women ensure the extraction of the tiny seeds without harming the fruit.

The yearly production is of only 5 000 to 6 000 85g jars which makes this an exceptional product that the French Gourmet Boutique proposes that you taste if only once in your life.
