Pick jewel-like currants that are glossy and firm. Black are the tartest and must be cooked, while red or white currants can be eaten fresh.

Yogurt Cake with Currant-Raspberry Sauce


The other kids might've called us strange, but we would have loved this tart, tender cake with sweet berry sauce for a Birthday in our youth. We're pretty sure they would've loved it too.

Compress your favorite summer fruit overnight inside a shell of spongy sandwich bread, then serve with a dollop of yogurt for an easy breakfast, or whipped cream for a lush dessert.

Rumtopf (Macerated Fruit Conserve)


Add a glug of this macerated fruit conserve, featuring red currants, blackberries and sour cherries to the bottom of a champagne flute, then fill with bubbly for a festive summer brunch cocktail. (Though it's equally good spooned over pound cake, mixed into ice cream or dolloped with yogurt)
