Today, I'm making a few of Alton Brown's Free Range Fruitcakes for Christmas desserts. I went to three grocery stores and one local 'whole foods' type market, and none of them had dried currants. Was there a crop failure, or does no one buy them in my area anymore? Do you find them at your local supermarkets? They used to be with the raisins, but nary a tag on a shelf did I find.
When I got home, I looked online to see where to order some, and really don't know the best place to get them at the best price.
Meanwhile, I subbed out more of the other dried fruits instead of the currants. For my next batch, I'd like to use the currants, though, if I can find any.
