Red and Black Currants or Rips and Solbær Featured in
Norwegians praise these berries for their healing properties. Today they are primarily used in the wine and liqueur industry and also for making juices or jams. Only a small percentage of the harvest is consumed fresh. The strong flavors of the berries make for perfect dessert toppings. Though red and black currants are native to Norway, they are not found in the wild, but grow only in private gardens. The berries come in season in late September.
