Freeze them! I put them in old margarine containers and just freeze them.
If you want them frozen loose, just put waxed paper on a cookie sheet.
Spread a layer of currants over the waxed paper, place in the freezer
(level) and freeze berries solid. Put the indiviual frozen berries into
containers or bags, they will not clump.
I use the same technique with sliced green peppers too.
Just put them in a large zip lock bag, and you can pull out a loose
handful, whenever you want them.
