Uses Of Raisins:

  • Fresh and properly stored raisins do not require any special attention before eating or using them in a recipe.

  • Raisins can be enjoyed alone or can be combined with other dry fruits like dates, almonds, apricots and prunes for a healthy snack.

  • They taste best when taken with warm milk.

  • You can add raisins to your breakfast cereals, homemade granola or sprinkle on a bowl of oatmeal.

  • You can also keep them in your purse or bag for a healthy on-the-go snack.

  • If the raisins have dried out, place them in a bowl filled with hot water for a few minutes. You can use this raisin-infused liquid for preparing a side dish. Use soaked raisin on top of a chicken dish or layer it with plain yoghurt to make a dessert parfait. Their sweetness and texture makes them a great addition to poultry stuffing.

  • Raisins are used extensively in salads and are added to curries in some cuisines.

  • They go well with most of the baked foods and are a sought after item in the confectioneries. They are added in muffins, cookies, biscuits, pies, and cakes. They are also used in the preparation of jams, jellies and puddings.
