bar-le-duc

Pronunciation: [bar-luh-DOOK]

A choice currant preserve that originally came from the French town of Bar-le-Duc in Lorraine. The preserve was once made from white currants whose tiny seeds were removed manually. Today it's made with red and white currants as well as other berry fruits, and the seeds are not generally removed by hand.
