I would make it again but I did not have red currant jelly on hand so substituted sweet red pepper jelly which is what I did have. What else might be a good substutute? It is nice to dress up a root vegetable on occasion.

The onions add a nice touch, but I found just using butter, Triple Sec and carrots gives you a similar taste without all the fuss and ingredients. It's a good recipe and will use again when I have extra time when making a meal.
