Zante currants, Corinthian raisins

What is it?

“Currant” is a bit of a misnomer; dried currants are in fact tiny raisins, the dried version of the Black Corinth variety of the common grape (Vitis vinifera). They are totally unrelated to the Ribes family of berries known as fresh red, black, and white currants.

Don’t have it?

In most cases, black raisins, though a bit larger, are a good substitute.
