Currants, Zante - 1 lb.


The origin of the word currant is unclear. Most likely the name comes from a distortion of the name of the Helenistic city, Corinth. It was from this location that currants were shipped across the ancient world. Dried Zante Currants look like petite raisins. The flavor of a currant is reminiscent of raisins but they have a lighter flavor and an almost licorice undertone. Currants are low in calories and high in Vitamin C. Use in baked goods, salads, sauces, stuffings, trail mixes, hot cereals, muffins, scones, fruit cakes and for homemade ice cream. Dried fruits may be eaten right out of the bag as a convenient and healthy snack. Mix with granola and almonds or in a trail mix.No sulfites. Dried Zante Currants are Sun-dried.

Suggested Use:
Currants can be sprinkled on top of vegetables or meats; tossed into salads for an interesting slightly sour note. Currants can play the role of a lemon or light vinegar in sweet and sour dishes. They are wonderful in sweet dishes; scones, muffins or in fruit toppings served over cakes or ice cream.
