  • A small dried fruit made from a seedless grape*
  • A small round acid berry
  • A family of shrubs that produce berries (including redcurrants and blackcurrants)


  • Of the immediate present – happening or being done/used now
  • Most recent or up-to-date
  • Commonly accepted or in common use
  • A flow of air or water in a definite direction, particularly through a body of air or water that has less movement
  • A flow of electricity or the rate of flow of electric charge

* Only acceptable in foodstuffs if it has first been soaked in copious amounts of brandy, rum or similar (as far as I am concerned).
