I just put my currants into 4 liter plastic pails and freeze them.

The freezing helps break down the cellular walls and releases more juice  
without cooking.

I do the same with fresh cider from the mill.  Emptied 2 liter pop bottles  
work fine for all juices.  Applesauce can also be frozen.

Prolonged freezing also offers some sterilizing effects.
