What Can I Do With Red Currants?

Good Questions

Q: I couldn't resist picking up some truly beautiful red currants at the farmer's market this morning even though I have no idea what to do with them.

Any suggestions?

Editor: Katie, personally I love currants in salads, like this one with fresh greens and cucumbers. You can also use them to dramatically decorate a cake, or just eat them raw.

Readers, what do you do with fresh currants?
