Price Per Unit:

Red currants are small red berries from the gooseberry family. They have a more tart flavour than black currants, with a touch of sweetness when ripe. Due to their high levels of pectin and acid, these berries are perfect for preserves, compotes, juices, and sauces. 

Red currants are found throughout Europe, where they originated (Western Europe), and are often found made into jellies that accompany lamb and game meats (venison, turkey, goose, etc). When in season they are also used for refreshing summer drinks and salads. They are perfect for adding a tart note to sweet dessert dishes, and accompany dairy and custards well.

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.
