When using currants in cooking, if a recipe demands only currants and color does not matter then red and white currants can be used interchangeably. This can be done for most recipes. If you want to use some berries then the answer could be gooseberries, raspberries, blue berries, huckleberry, juneberry, raisins, dates , bananas and nuts also can be substituted. There might be some change in the color, texture, taste or flavor but it might not be bad. The ratio can be one cup currants to one cup raisins or chopped dates or berries and dried fruits or nuts.
