I jumped on board to do this post when TheRecipeRedux and the people at CaliforniaRaisins.Org joined together co-sponsor a contest using California Raisins. The one clear thought in my mind was that the dish that I would create should have no added sugar. It kills me when I see recipes with California raisins as one of the principal ingredients and then they add over a cup of sugar to the recipe. Even in a recipe for cake that amount of sugar is overkill when using this delicious dried fruit.
When I was a kid my mother used to pack my lunches; usually a balogna sandwich a piece of fruit and a little box of raisins. The sandwich, as you may well imagine, made for dull and monotonous food; they piece of fruit was usually pretty good, but the California Raisins… they were my treat! Besides their succulent sweet taste, what I enjoyed about them, and still enjoy, is their plumpness and juiciness, and how they roll on my tongue.
California Raisins are not only tasty, they are a ideal food! Take look at the reasons below and you’ll see why:
