It is difficult to find currants in my area, especially the sun-Maid brand. I’m not sure why, but I prefer them when I bake. They are naturally sweeter and plumper to me. I really like the smaller size. In my opinion Sun-Maid makes the best raisins and currants. They are not dried out which is important in baking!
It's the perfect ingredient to put in salads for a little taste of sweetness. I use them in baking mini cookies because they are a smaller size than raisins. I know they have health benefits and just taste great. I recommend them for a snack in lunch boxes as well.
This is my first time buying Zante currants and they are so tasty. I was actually surprised at how small they are but regardless to that, they are full of flavor. I'm using the currants for my baking as they are the perfect size for many of my recipes. They are also much cheaper on IHERB than at my local supermarket where I live so as long as that's the case, I will repurchase.
Currants were recommended to me because they’re high in iron, which I need more of. They’re like mini raisins but taste slightly different. No added sugar. Sweet but not overly sweet. Soft but not too chewy. Tasty, healthier alternative to snacking.
