Sultanas are made from green seedless grapes, especially the Thompson Seedless variety. Against raisins, sultanas are typically coated in an oil-based solution prior to drying to speed up the process. For this reason, they are often lighter in color than raisins and currants.
Currants, also known as Zante currants, are tiny, dried grapes. Currants are made by drying a variety of small, seedless grapes called Black Corinth and Carina. Currants are dried for up to three weeks. Because of their small size, they have a sweet, tangy and intense flavor and add texture and sweetness to both sweet and savory dishes.
