Raisins – Golden, Jumbo

History points to 1873 as the year in which raisins first appeared by accident, when a massive heat wave dried the grapes on the vine and farmers were forced to market them or go bankrupt! Ongoing research on raisins shows that they contain an antioxidizing agent which is proving beneficial in the prevention of intestinal tumours and other disease.

To maintain optimum freshness, keep raisins sealed in an airtight container in the refrigerator or in your coolest storage area. Raisins also freeze well for long periods of time and thaw quickly at room temperature. Raisins are subjected to minimal processing, being simply dried on the vine, washed, dried again, sorted for sizing and boxed.

Contrary to popular belief, golden raisins are not made from green or golden grapes, they are simply regular Thompson raisins which have been treated with a sulphur solution, resulting in the golden colour.
