Since the Middle Ages, Europeans knew the value of raisins.
Not only did the Phoenicians and Egyptians use them to have enough energy on their commercial journeys; Columbus and his crew carried them on their expeditions.
Even Hannibal, the Carthaginian leader who crossed the Pyrenees on an elephant, brought them along to keep his troops strong.
Raisins are dried grapes, from which water is removed through heat and exposure to the sun in order to preserve them for a longer time.
Like other natural dried fruits, they are a superfood that doesn’t need to be exotic or come from far away to contribute to a healthy body.
- Fiber to combat digestive problems.
- Antioxidants to prevent tissue aging.
- Minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and selenium, to keep muscles, nerves, and bones in good shape.
They also contain melatonin (the sleep hormone), which helps with sleep and can be great before bedtime.
They are versatile, appreciative, and easy to prepare.
A handful of raisins is divine in yogurt, kefir, granola, homemade ice cream, or a good oat porridge with fresh fruit.
You can also combine them with nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pistachios.
And if you like to try different flavors than the usual ones, you have the option of turning to old recipes, where meats were stuffed with raisins and prunes, and the inspiration of Hispano-Arabic cuisine provided a great culinary experience for each diner.
If you’re into snacks or nibbles, you can simply eat them straight from the bag.
