Red currants are best known for making great jams and jellies --that is if you're familiar with them at all. This little red fruit is more common in Europe than in the United States, so we understand if you've never tried them. But, they are one little fruit definitely worth knowing.
If you have had -- and loved -- red currant jam you know what we're talking about. While it's true that red currant jam is smile inducing, this fruit is even better in desserts because they're not too sweet and they're very cute. Red currants make great cake recipes, even better fruit tarts and are a nice addition to ice cream.
