An Old World Berry with New World Benefits

These little berries from old-world Europe pack a lot of nutrition into a small package. One cup of black currants has over 300% of the daily recommended value of vitamin C and generous amounts of manganese and iron. Plus, black currant seed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids. You can eat black currants raw, but they have a tart flavor. Instead, try making jams, jellies and juices. Sweeten them with with a little Agave syrup. Enjoy.
