Sultana raisins, also known as “golden raisins”, are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They’re used in many cuisines throughout the world for both sweet and savoury dishes.
These pale golden brown raisins are soft, moist, and juicy with a sweet and slightly fragrant flavour. Their plump texture, delicious taste, and ability to absorb other flavours make them incredibly versatile.
