HOW BLACK RAISIN ARE MADE

 

The most popular dried grape is black raisins, which are typically made from seedless Thompson grapes set out on paper and sun dried for three weeks, but can be made with grapes of any skin colour. As the raisins dry, they become brown to black. Heat and sunlight are also important factors in the browning reaction.

Raisins should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh and prevent them from drying out.
