Raisins have a long history, showing up as one of the first preserved fruits in Ancient Roman, Greek, and Egyptian cultures. In Rome, raisins became so highly valued that people traded them like currency. They were prized for their high nutrient content and easy long lasting shelf life.
Today raisins can be enjoyed alone or covered in chocolate, or prepared in sweet and savory dishes. Bake them into baked goods like cinnamon raisin bread, oatmeal raisin cookies, raisin bran muffins, and more. Eat them for breakfast in oatmeal or for dessert in bread pudding.
