Raisins are dried grapes available packaged or in bulk. They are eaten out of hand or used as an ingredient in sweet and savory dishes. Dark seedless raisins have deep color and flavor, while golden seedless are pale and tangy. Store unopened packages in a dry place; seal opened packages and refrigerate or freeze.
