Dried Fruit Combinations

Can anyone tell me why Delia uses so many more currants than raisins and sultanas in Christmas cake? Is it to reduce the sweetness of the cake? Does it not make it a bit 'gritty'?

currants

I leave them out and add more of the other fruit. Don't know about gritty, though.

dried fruit

I tend to really scrimp or omit altogether currants - as for some reason i dont like them, preferring raisins.

I always like to vary my fruit also more favourites are chopping up ready to eat dried apricots, dried apple and dried pineapple, and a few more cherries.

just make the weight as per delias recipe with what you like/orefer.
