Raisins Currants and Sultanas

Recommended Posts

I am translating a recipe for a French friend, one for a rich fruit cake.In the market I see small (black)raisins secs which I think are 'raisins' in English, and larger white raisins secs which I think are 'sultanas'.

In that case how do translate 'currants' ?...Or am I wrong about the other two?..

Currents are raisins de corinthe, which are the tiny black ones. I used to buy my raisins de corinthe from Intermarche.

 

The others were available in most supermarkets.

 

I have to say that the dark and the golden for me are sultanas, that's how they taste to me, but will be fine in a recipe.

Here you go: I picked out the most concise version of this, but there were others that told more about currants, raisins and sultanas than you could ever wish to know!
