Dear clients, the COVID19 epidemic has taken a hard toll (physically and mentally) on myself and on our employees. Online sales have skyrocketted and we have processed more than 10 times the orders we normally ship out since March. We have decided to take a much deserved break. We will resume operations on November 30th. We will still be taking orders and will respond to all emails but all orders will ship out on November 30th. We look forward to be back from our much deserved rest in full force.

Chers clients, l'épidémie de COVID19 a fait des ravages (physiquement et mentalement) sur moi-même et sur nos employés. Les ventes en ligne ont explosé et nous avons traité plus de 10 fois de commandes que nous expédions normalement depuis mars. Nous avons décidé de faire une pause bien méritée. Nous reprendrons les opérations le 30 novembre. Nous prendrons toujours les commandes et répondrons à tous les courriels, mais toutes les commandes seront expédiées le 30 novembre. Nous avons hâte de revenir de notre repos bien mérité en force.

Our organic dried Thompson raisins are full of natural sugars and are a great choice to curb your sweet cravings without loading on extra calories. They are sun-dried in California. Boron, which is essential for bone formation is present in large quantities in raisins. Raisins are also packed with calcium which is required for bone strength.

From raisin bread, as a topping for oatmeal to trail mixes, our dried Thompson raisins have so many uses. You can also soak them in water overnight to enhance their nutritional profile.

Did you know that is takes 4 times the amount of fresh grapes to make dried grapes?

 

What is the difference between "Thompson" and "Sultana" raisins?

  • Both "Thompson" and "Sultana" raisins come from the same "Thompson Seedless Grape" variety.
  • The difference lies in how they are dried. "Thompson" raisins are sun dried without any additional processing. This takes up to 3 weeks and raises their cost. "Sultana" raisins are dipped in oil (organic vegetable oil or more typically organic olive oil) and laid out in the sun to dry. This greatly speeds up the drying process and prevents them from becoming dark like "Thompson" raisins. Their processing being more industrial they are less popular but equally delicious.


Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
