Zante Currants (Raisins)

These raisin-looking currants are called Zante currants, and they are indeed not currants, but proper grape raisins. Confusing, right? Bear with us. While currants come from a flowering bush, raisins come from grapes that grow on vines, like these Zante currants. Zante currants are very small dried Black Corinth grapes, originally from Greece, and like all raisins are sweet with a very grapey flavor. Black currants, on the other hand, are even smaller than these Zantes, and have a deeper, berry-like flavor that’s quite tart.

Zantes make a wonderful dried fruit because once the water content has been reduced that sweet grape flavor, already potent when fresh, is really allowed to shine. Zante currants are dried without any added sugar, leaving them to be their sweet selves. They are very healthy little snacks with many antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

In baking dried 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.
