I’m eating the “Gardens of England” snack from graze.com. It consists in dried strawberries, dried apples and dried blackcurrants. Prior to this, my only experience with currants was in a candy and a jam when I visited Ireland. On those occasions, what I tasted was mild and sweet. On tasting them in this snack, however they’re quite bitter and sour. I actually am enjoying them a lot–the sour currants together with the sweet strawberries actually make a nice combo. But I am wondering if this is how they’re supposed to taste, or whether I got a bad batch.
Could be due to the drying as well, possibly?
Anyway, what do you think? Is this probably a normal flavor for dried blackcurrants?
