                                                              Sweet Currant Rolls

1/2 cup currants
5 cups whole wheat or unbleached white flour
1 1/4 cup 98F apple juice
6 Tbs. honey
3 Tbs. safflower oil
1 Tbs. yeast

Combine honey, warm (98F) apple juice and yeast in a large bowl.
Set aside until it becomes foamy; approximately 10 minutes.
Mix in 2 cups of flour and stir thoroughly.
Use a clean cloth to cover the bowl.
Allow the mixture to rise for 30 minutes.
Mix in currants, safflower oil and adequate flour so the dough can be kneaded.
Knead the dough on a floured surface until becomes not too sticky.
Put the dough in another bowl and cover as above.
Put bowl in a warm place and allow the dough to rise for one hour.
Use parchment paper to line two large baking sheets.
Return dough to floured surface and separate into 18 pieces.
Shape each piece into a small ball.
Put shaped balls on the baking sheets at a distance of 1 to 2 inches apart.
Cut a couple of slashes on the top of each ball.
Cover the baking sheets with the same cloth, put into a warm location and allow to rise for 10 minutes.
Preheat the over to 375F.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the rolls turn brown just lightly.
