About Dried Currants

Currants, raisins, and berries oh my! There is a lot of confusion in the culinary world about the difference between black currants, raisins, zante currants, and gooseberries. So, we at Gourmet Food World just want to set the record straight: raisins are dried grapes, zante currants are dried grapes from Greece incorrectly named when first imported, gooseberries are sour little bush grown berries, and black currants are also bush grown berries of a different variety that are also tart though sweeter than gooseberries.

Currants make a wonderful dried fruit because once the water content has been reduced the flavors, already potent when fresh, are really allowed to shine. Currants are dried without added sugar, leaving them to be their sour sweet tarty selves. They are very healthy little snacks with many antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

In baking dried black currants can be used as a substitute for raisins, dates, cranberries, or prunes. Their tartness pairs well with sweeter fruits like strawberries, raspberries, oranges, and cherries.

Currants also compliment savory dishes when paired with game meats, Marsala spices, and grains.

Like all dried fruit, dried currants have a long and stable shelf life.
