‘Sticky’ raisins

‘Sticky’ raisins
June 19, 2019 11:38PM
For heavy fruit cakes I have always used the large raisins that came in a block and chop them up. I have not seen the blocks of raisins in the supermarket for years — says how long since I last make one of these cakes!

Does anyone know where one can get these or what the best alternative is? I note that the variety of traditional dries fruits has reduced a lot presumably reflecting demand.

I haven't seen them for years either and have been wondering the same thing. My bachelor girl days was a steady diet of baked beans with a few of these sticky raisins added and curry powder, then poured over Vogel's toast. It was jolly good.

Hmm, well, not answering your question exactly but my recommendation would be to get the dried fruits individually (from packets or bins) because those cake fruit mixes you can buy are usually full of fake fruit made from sugar and gelatine and usually the only real thing in them is the sultanas/raisins, for which you're paying a ripoff price..

I've seen muscatels at Moore Wilson here at times, on the stalk, not in packets though.
