    Look forward to making these!! Why currants?
    Can raisins be used instead?

      Hi Kay, thanks for your question! Yes, you can absolutely use raisins. The biggest difference is that currants are more tart in flavour, while raisins are sweeter. So, if you’re after some more sweetness then raisins are the way to go. _ Liesl ‘Liquorice’
