Simply so, how do you eat black currants?

Select blackcurrants that are firm and dark purple or black in color with a clear, slightly glossy skin. Remove stems and calyx tips, then rinse under cool running water. If not used immediately, berries will last in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

Similarly, how do I identify blackcurrant bushes? Leaves are light green in color and have 3 to 5 lobes with rounded tips. The leaf margins along each lobe are serrated. Unlike, many other shrubs that produce small black berries, there are no thorns on the stems of black currants, but the bark has a rough, shredded texture.

Secondly, why is black currant illegal in the US?

What is the difference between red and black currants?
