I have a question about the recipe "Fergus Henderson's Eccles Cake" from Food52. Are the currants in this recipe dried or fresh?

Dried. Its rare to find a recipe with fresh currants, so if it doesn't specify, I would almost always assume dried.

Darn. I had the same question. I was hoping to find a recipe using actual currants. :(
