We should also point out that there's another food referred to as a currant, which are small, dried Zante grapes. These are also known as Zante currants and Corinthian raisins, and are unrelated to the berries we're reviewing in this post. These dried grapes ended up being called "currants" when they were exported from Greece to the United States, and the word "Corinth" was mistranslated as "Currant."
Currants are native to Europe, so they might be a bit hard to find in the United States. You might want to check your local farmer's market if the grocery store doesn't have them. We can have currants about 2-3 times per week in moderation.
|New berries! I bet I'll like the red ones better!|
|Hey, those are my berries. Back off!|
|Oh no! I lost control of the plate!|
Cage politics aside, I have to say the berries were delicious. The taste has been described as "lightly sour raspberry," and we love raspberries! We give currants 5/5 stars!
