    Currant Muffins Recipe; a Family Favorite Breakfast Recipe
    One of my favorite memories growing up was my Mom’s delicious Currant Muffins. It was amazing how she could take a tiny Bitter “berry” type fruit and turn it into something so delicious.
    What is a Currant you ask? Ok; I admit Currants aren’t the most well-known berry. Currants are the berries from a Fast Growing Shrub; that grow in a clustered ‘grape-like’ fashion. They are small with seeds in the center. They are quite bitter on their own, but when cooked can be turned into some of the most delicious Jelly, muffins, juice and purees!

    These were very easy to make. But, I put in two cups of currants as was mentioned in the recipe. I think I should have added a little extra sugar since the muffins came out a little bitter. I will eat them but I actually was making them to give to someone, and now I don't think I will.

    […] dehydrating them because the flavor really concentrates but you could easily whip up a batch of muffins or jam. We’ll be finishing the harvest of them in the morning, so I’m not exactly sure […]

    I really wanted to follow your recipe but was unable to due to the large amount of pop up ads, especially the ebook one which could not be closed. Consider how this makes your site inaccessible for phones and unpleasant for a computer as well. Thanks!

    Just made these and found them super tasty! Works great with fresh currants, but beware of using muffin liners as it will stick to the paper. Can't wait to make again!

    Recipe was good but baking powder was way too much! It tasted all like it, I would say that 1 teaspoon woul have been enough!
