I have a black currant and a champaigne currant with ripe fruit. I'd like to do something to preserve the fruit, jelly, cassis, etc. Anyone have recipies to share?

I haven't had much yield from my currants yet, and in fact lost a couple. (This year looks like it might be better.) The few I did pick 2 years ago were dehydrated and used in currant scones.

You could always macerate some in vodka!

The sauce for grilled meats on this page sounds interesting.

I use them in scones, chicken salad, and curry.
Wonderful, tiny bursts of sweetness. Yum!

I'm making Ann Romney's Welsh cakes today. Recipe calls for currants. Google it.
