Organic Dried Zante Currants

Bella Viva's organic Zante Currants are dried from the highest quality Black Corinth Grape. They are first known to be cultivated in ancient Greece on the Ionian Island of Zakynthos or "Zante," the English translation. Famous for their intense, rich flavor and small size, they make the perfect ingredient for baked goods, granola, and yogurt. Our organic dried Zante Currants are so good we prefer to eat them right out of the bag.

Healthy eater
I learned about zantes from "Eating on the Wild Side" book by Jo Robinson. They actually are tiny raisins (grapes), not currants (gooseberry plant family.) I tried them due to their superior nutritional value compared to Thompson seedless raisins. But I keep eating them mostly because they are so tasty...more complex and slightly less sweet flavor compared to Thompsons. Bella Viva has assured me these zantes are not oiled. (Many raisins now are, and sometimes this is not labeled, so you need to check.) So they taste better and are healthier (as oil goes rancid), but still don't stick together like unoiled Thompsons do. I buy these in the 30 lb box and divide them up with friends, so they are affordable. I keep mine in the fridge in the summer & in a cold pantry in the winter. This is my 3rd box of zantes in 3 years; excellent quality each time.

Delicious taste from currant juice
Wonderful organic currants, wonderful company! I soak the currants overnight and use the juice in a raw organic sprouted oat groat porridge (as my system doesn't tolerate eating the currants themselves). This currant juice adds delicious taste and nutrition and how wonderful it is organic (the only way to go for me for the sake of my own health and that of the planet). Thanks very much!

excellent quality
I purchased the 5 lb package of Dried Zante Currants. They are amazingly sweet like sugar. There is no oil coating on the outside. I love snacking on them or using them in bakery. I will purchase more next time.

Since fresh currants are slightly tart, the dried product is delicious. Sweet, but less sweet than other dried fruits. Great for baking, eating with nuts, mixing with plain yogurt or a simple snack. Will definitely purchase again.

It's hard to find currants even in my Washington DC. And I especially wanted organic currants. So I really depend on this source several times a year for my scones and other baking endeavors! They are delicious and fresh and ship very quickly.

It has been along time since I have tasted a dried currant . This batch taste like tiny Tender ,sweet raisons to me. Very tender! The thought of homemade bran muffins or morning glory muffins would be a good recipe for these. Another idea, in spice pumpkin or banana bread too.

Excellent price & flavor
I put these in muffins made with grits, pumpkin seeds and white + spelt flour. If you don't have raisins try these in muffins.
