Currants

Have you ever had currants? When they are dried they look like tiny black raisins, but fresh they are gorgeous little red jewels which hold high amounts of vitamin E and C. The E helps keep your immune system strong, and with just a small handful of current, you’ve hit your recommended daily allowance or Vitamin C. Why needs a tablet when you can enjoy these juicy, sweet and tart treats?


Unfortunately they are not in season all year round, though I did manage to get my hand on some from a beautiful Connecticut farm recently. You are most likely to find them in warm summer months. When you do, treat them similarly to pomegranate seeds. Eat them alone or, for better absorption of fat soluble E vitamins, mix it into non-dairy yogurt.
