From Visalia, California sun-dried Red Flame raisins—this specialty raisin has a satisfying rich and robust flavor.

It’s perfect in many ways, besides a great out of hand snack:

  • In cereals (I love ‘em in oatmeal)
  • In vegetable and fruit salads
  • In broccoli salads
  • In rice pudding
  • In breads
  • In scones
  • In stuffing
  • In chicken recipes—Curry or Spanish chicken, for example
