Description

Organic Thompson Raisins are a great natural sweetener.

Organic Thompson Raisins are the most common variety of raisin.  These plump raisins are a really delicious addition to baking recipes or as a simple snack.  We love them added to homemade muesli mixes for their natural sweetness and chewy texture.

Raisins start off as grapes and are dried naturally in the sun to produce these tasty little treats.  These organically produced raisins are not treated with sulphur-dioxide so are dark in colour.  They can be used in so many ways and are a popular ingredient in sweet and savoury dishes to add natural sweetness.  They go really well in creamy curries and vibrant salads.

If you want to try a mix of currants, sultanas and raisins for some variety try our organic mixed vine fruit combination.

    These raisins are the absolute best quality I have ever tasted they remind me of a delicious desert wine. I soaked them in orange liqueur and added them to a Castagnaccio cake (chestnut cake) they really did make it very special.
