Red currants berries are loosely clustered in elongated strands and have a somewhat translucent sheen. Less robustly flavored than black currants, but more tart than white currants, they offer flavors of raspberry, cranberry, gooseberry, rhubarb, hints of rose, and a moderately acidic finish.
Like the black and white varieties, Red currants are perfectly suited for the typical jelly, jam, syrup, or baked goods, however, their palate-cleansing acidity and moderate sugar level lends them to savory applications as well.
Store Red currants in the refrigerator to keep for up to 6 days. And for 1 to 2 days at room temperature.
