Nest Essentials: Raisins 101

raisin basics

Love ’em or hate ’em, raisins are a powerhouse of nutrition and a great culinary arrow to have in your quiver. As a natural sweetener they are ideal for baked goods, but work wonderfully in savory applications, as well. 

Eat them alone or paired with your favorite nuts for a healthy snack… or mix them into your favorite cookies or fudge. Just be sure to choose quality product from a reputable brand… all raisins are NOT created equally. Store them properly and they will last a very long time. If they become crystallized, revive them by soaking in a little hot water.
