Those currants are dried Zante grapes, ake currant grapes, aka champagne
grapes. No, they don't make Champagne from them. They're very small,
good-flavored grapes. Small and dark, like black currants. Maybe the
marketers think they look like Champagne bubbles? So dried Zante grapes are
called currants, and dried currants are called - dried currants.

Subject: Re: [NAFEX] citron
Having just made a fruitcake (panforte) after a lot of research and
purchasing of ingredients online I discovered that what "citron" is a fruit
(a citrus peel), candied lemon and orange peel are appropriate
substitutions. I also found that dried "currants" used in recipes like Hot
Cross Buns are actually raisins.
