Default second mead recpie need input

so at the farmers market i got some great light colored honey.
Its cactus flower honey from southern utah.
Nice and floral.

I was looking at currants as well.

So i was thinking 12lbs cactus honey and about 3-4 red or black currants.

Wondering if anyone has had luck with currants?
Should i go dry or standard mead?

btw this is a 4 gallon batch of mead.

if i could get fresh prickly pears i would.
The honey was easy to get.

Currants are in season around here and looked pretty damn good.

I'll trade you some prickly pear fruit for currants if you're interested.
I've got a trade for some huckleberries for prickly pears already but I've got a mess of great ones at my disposal.
