I'm having partridge for dinner tonight.

I'm not a great lover of bread sauce. I rather fancy something sweeter any ideas?

There is no problem if it includes opening a bottle of red wine. :rolleyes:

    Could you just make a jus from the cooking sauces, with a splash of wine and stir in a tbl of crab apple or redcurrant jelly? If no jelly, then add teeny bits of sugar until you get the sweetness you want.

    I had a simular thought. Using red wine and HM cherry jam. I haven't got redcurrent jelly. (Forgot to replace it.:o)

    I never had partridge. Pheasant, wild duck, woodcock but for some reason never partridge.

    30 minutes and counting. :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed the partridge. I think I prefer the taste to that of pheasant.

    The cherry jam and wine worked well, So simple will certainly do that again.

    More partridge required.:drool:

    We are having partridge stuffed with wild boar and apricots for our Christmas dinner, and wondered what sauce would go best with it? We haven't had partridge before, would cranberry still go ok?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Julia might know, I think she's been dealing with partridge (see 12 days of Xmas Oldstyle!)

    Try Cumberland Sauce - it's made with Port and orange and it absolutely lush and perfect with game!

    Your christmas lunch sounds stunning by the way!
