Nutritional values

Some of the bioactive vital substances contained in the berries land on your breakfast roll, for example potassium and flavonoids. The latter are natural colorants that trigger antioxidative effects in the body and thus protect against damage caused by oxygen radicals.

Buy currants that are nice and plump and shiny - then they are really fresh. For a mixed berry jelly, you can replace some of the currants with blackberries, strawberries, gooseberries or blueberries.
