#716.3 Zante Currants
Net Wt: 10.5 oz (298g)
Zante Currants are one of the oldest known raisins, with the first written record of their use in 75 A.D. They are the dried form of small, sweet, seedless grapes that grow in small, tight clusters. These dark, thin-skinned grapes have a juicy, sweet soft flesh. Most Zante Currants are produced in Greece, and in the vineyards of California, South Africa and Australia. The word "currant" comes from an adaptation of their earlier name "raisins of Corinth."
Currants are most popular as an ingredient in baked goods, such as scones and muffins, but can also be incorporated into savory preparations, such as stuffing, salads and sauces.
