A very popular berry in Britain and Europe, black currants are most often made into syrups, preserves, compotes, and cordials. It is also popular juiced and as a juice concentrate.
Raw black currants are tart and slightly sweet, and are high in pectin and acid making them perfect for preserving. Black currants pair beautifully with dairy (yogurt, ice cream, cheesecakes, charcuterie boards etc), as well as with baked goods, and make a wonderful addition to other fruits. The tartness of this berry is also well suited to savoury dishes and meat sauces, especially for fatty meats like duck.
Black currant originates from Europe and northern Asia and cultivation of black currant bushes in Europe began towards the end of the 17th century.
About the Vendor
Mikuni Wild Harvest is a Vancouver-based company that sources sustainable and artisanal food from the pacific rim. Mikuni started exporting mushrooms to Japan and Europe in the early eighties. In 2001, Mikuni changed focus to the development of a boutique line of sustainable wild foods for restaurants and gourmet retail outlets. Since then, our company has grown from a few committed individuals slugging it out in a basement office, to a team of like-minded individuals with distribution centers throughout Canada and the United States. Although the size and direction of our company has changed dramatically over the years, our concept and commitment has not. It has always been Mikuni’s goal to provide our customers with the highest quality of unique and sustainable wild foods. Inasmuch as the organic food movement has garnered attention in the last decade, at Mikuni we believe that we are at the beginning of another movement, one that explores the abundance of richly flavoured foods found exclusively in the wild.
