Fun Facts / Cooking Tips

Do you know that dried currants used in baked goods are actually dried Zante raisins from Greece? Zante raisins are smaller and more flavorful than conventional raisins. Fresh currants are piquant, plump, glossy red or black berries used mainly in jams and jellies. Currants are high in Vitamin C, Manganese, Iron and Potassium, while low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are ideal for maintaining optimum health and weight loss.

You can substitute currants with raisins, chopped soft prunes or chopped dates. This low carb, low calorie, low sodium sugar free cookie recipe makes a delightful healthy dessert.
