A variety of seedless, white grape once grown only in Smyrna, Turkey. Today sultanas (golden raisins) are grown in many parts of the world where they are dried either naturally in the sun or artificially. In North America seedless white raisins, or sultanas, are classified as part of the raisin variety of grape.

Sultanas have become among the most well loved of all dried fruits, and most are now available washed, packaged and ready for use. Some can be bought in bulk and these, too, are usually ready-prepared; if not, remove any stalks or grit, rinse and dry well on paper towels before using.

Sultanas are nutritious and delicious eaten as a snack on their own. Children love to find a little packet of sultanas in their school lunch-boxes or mixed with a little salad of grated carrot and cheese. Sultanas also appear in many cakes, biscuits, puddings and in some savoury dishes, particularly those containing rice.

Store sultanas in an airtight container after opening the pack, and buy only as many as you need at the time to keep them at their peak. To hold in top condition for longer than a week or two, store in refrigerator or freezer.
