Currants or Zante currant are types of raisins that are made with dried Corinth grapes, which are tiny, black grapes. This type of grapes is about one-fourth the size of standard grapes. Currants are seedless like Sultanas but they are the smallest type of raisins and also have the darkest color. The taste of this type of raisins is not different than other types but due to their small size, they have an intense flavor. Did you know? The Zante currant is one of the oldest known raisins that are originated from Greece.
