ISO: Fresh Red Currants
I'm looking for a pint or two of fresh red currants for a preserve recipe. Despite all the berries I notice in stores, I can't seem to find currants anywhere. Has anyone seen any at stores/farmers market/farm stand recently? Ideally in FLL. Your help will be much appreciated.
I am fairly certain that (1) currants are not grown (commercially) anywhere in South Florida; and (2) the places where they are grown, they're a summer crop.
Found this chart showing production areas and seasons: http://www.naturipefarms.com/Data/Doc...
Maybe consider a different recipe. Strawberries are grown locally, in season right now, and delicious.
