I don’t come across red currants often. But when I saw them at the store, I couldn’t resist buying them. They’re really tart, so I wouldn’t recommend eating them like grapes or blueberries. But they’re great as toppings and add ins for desserts and drinks.

Have you ever had popping boba before? They’re round and colorful and filled with fruit juices. When you bite into a popping boba, juice bursts from within. You can usually find them as toppings for frozen yogurt, rolled ice cream, or milk tea. These red currants remind me of them!
