Not to be confused with dried grapes (sometimes also called currants), these little fruits can deliciously double for most any other berry in pies and jams. Their slightly tart sweetness also makes them a delectable sauce ingredient for savory meats.

Currant Fruit and their Popularity
Currant fruit (Corinth) are small berries that come in different colors from ruby red to dark purple and even a near translucent white. Currants are smaller than your common grapes, but taste much different with their tartness. Currant and Zante Currants (like a small dried raisin) are popular for snacks and desserts (tarts, scones, pies).
