I recently discovered Sun-Maid Zante Currants, and they have quickly become a favorite in my pantry. These little treats are bursting with natural sweetness and offer a versatile addition to any recipe. The currants are plump, juicy, and deliver a delightful balance of flavors. From baking to snacking, these high-quality currants are a must-have. Don't miss out on the deliciousness!
This is an unusually tiny grape. The skin is thin and fruit still have a soft and easy to eat texture. This tiny fruit has a sweet and tart taste and nice to add to oats, yogurts and salads. The packet is fairly big so it can last quite a while. After opening must refrigerate as the fruit can get wet and slimy and mouldy. The quality of fruits used are fresh and good quality
I used to buy currants from another company, but these are the best I have ever tried. They are super fresh and full of flavor. I have bought them numerous times and they always deliver the same quality. I am on a FODMAP diet and really shouldn’t eat raisins, but I love them. I have found I can use a small portion of these in baked goods and have a load of enjoyment with no negative effect on my suggestion.
I must admit that I bought these thinking they were ribes (redcurrant), but it turns out that zante currants are just tiny raisins. Nonetheless, they do taste nice (although pretty similar to normal raisins, maybe a bit sweeter), and I really love the fact that they don't have any added sugars, so you can snack without feeling too much guilt. The amount is generous for the price, at least considering that it's not a product you see often here in Japan.
These surprisingly tasted no different from raisins. Though these currants are considerably sweeter, there is no sugar added--Zante currants (sourced from Greece and the USA) are the only ingredient on the package. Size-wise these are much smaller, roughly the size of dried blueberries. Despite this, they have a nice soft chew to them.
