Zante Currants are the dried form of small, sweet, seedless grapes (Black Corinth) that grow in small, tight clusters. Zante Currants are much smaller than regular raisins and are dark, thin-skinned grapes that have a sour/sweet flavor and juicy, soft flesh.

Not technically currants, these delicious little raisins probably got their current name from "Reysyns de Corauntz" (Raisins of Corinth) as they were originally grown in Corinth in the South of Greece. The word 'Corinth' changed to 'currant' as time went on. They became known as Zante Current as trade shifted to Zakynthos (Zante) from Corinth.

Zante Currants are most popular as an ingredient in baked goods, such as scones and muffins, but can also be incorporated into savory preparations, such as stuffings, salads and sauces. Adding currants to your next dish will give a dose of iron and potassium.
