Currant Muffins Recipe; a Family Favorite Breakfast Recipe

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!
