This was a tasty and sweet stew. I didn't have currants or raisins so I chopped up some prunes; I also used a small can of chopped black olives for the kalamata. Instead of orzo, I served this with low-carb macaroni. Fabulous dish though a bit sweeter than I am accustomed to. NO ONE noticed the presence of the prunes or olives (both no-nos with rest of family). That pushed my rating up to 5 stars.
