Uses of raisins

Murals from prehistoric times show that raisins were consumed and used as decorations in the Mediterranean region of Europe during that era. Raisins were also highly prized by the ancient Romans, who adorned their places of worship with them and used them as barter currency and as prizes for the winners of sporting events.

Besides, raisins were often an essential item on the menus at Bacchanalian feasts. From ancient Rome, the practice of drying grapes into raisins subsequently spread throughout the world.

Raisins, sultanas, and currants are all incredibly versatile and can be eaten alone, as a snack, or added to rice dishes, stews, salads, oatmeal, and baked goods. Despite their slight differences in size and taste, each can be used in many of the same recipes and can be easily substituted for one another.

Here are some ideas for how to incorporate them into your diet:

Eat as a morning or afternoon snack: You can eat them plain or add to yogurt or nuts for a more substantial snack. Alternatively, try making your trail mix.

Add to oatmeal: A small sprinkling of raisins, sultanas, and currants adds natural sweetness to your porridge. When added to baked goods like cookies or cakes, the raisins help retain moisture in the final products.

Add to salads: Raisins, in particular, are excellent for adding sweetness and texture to salads. They pair well with bitter greens and crunchy nuts.

Add to baked goods: Adding dried fruit to muffins, granola bars, and cookies is a great way to sweeten baked goods. Raisins and sultanas are particularly good.

Drink raisin water: Drinking raisin water will help you flush out all the harmful toxins from your body. This drink improves the biochemical process of the liver and helps you clean the blood. It can easily detoxify your liver, regulate acid in the stomach, regulate blood pressure, improve bones strength, and prevent cancer.

Add to savory dishes: Try adding any of the three to savory dishes such as curries, meatballs, chutneys, rice pilaf, and couscous.

Substitute for Chocolate: Hold the sprinkles and add some raisins! Scoop your favorite low-fat ice cream over a peeled banana and sprinkle raisins on top. It can soak up other flavors and make the finished product even tastier.

How to store raisin

Raisins and other dried fruits will last quite a long time without being frozen, but they do have a nasty habit of either clumping together or drying out more than you want them to. The best solution is proper storage.

Raisins should be appropriately stored to stay fresh for a longer time. After opening, keep packages of raisins tightly closed with a plastic tie or rubber band. They can also be put into a sealable plastic storage bag.

Storing dried fruit in the refrigerator prolongs freshness for up to one year. Avoid putting raisins in a kitchen cupboard that may be warm (near the stove) because high temperatures can cause raisins to lose their moisture more quickly.
