If possible, select raisins that have been organically grown and are free of pesticides, added sugars and artificial preservatives. Ensure that they are moist and plump before buying.
Store in an airtight container in the pantry if using within a few weeks, otherwise store in the refrigerator in a container with a tight fitting lid where they will keep for up to a year.
Tips & Tricks:
