Storing Raisins

Jul 01
  By SarahShort

❁ Depending on the variety of grape, raisins (dried grapes) become dark brown or golden.

❁ Look for tightly-sealed containers or covered bulk bins. Raisins should feel soft and pliable.

❁ Store raisins in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place.

❁ Once opened, reseal the package tightly to help prevent hardening. For best quality use within 6 months.

❁ If raisins become hard, soak in hot liquid for 5 to 15 minutes. Drain and use.

❁ It takes 1 cup of grapes to make ¼ cup of raisins. They both have about 100 calories.
