Raisins are dried grapes. They have been a staple food since humans began growing grapes and were quite popular among the Egyptians and Phoenicians.

Grapes are a chemical-heavy crop, so consider choosing organic raisins. Also be sure to read the labels as some raisins are doused with sulfides to protect their color.

Dried fruit is suitable for all winter celebrations to remind us that our ancestors subsisted through the winter on preserved food like raisins.

I like to add raisins to baked goods and to my morning oatmeal.
