Curtis Catering – Sultanas

What’s the difference between Sultanas, Raisins and Currants?

  • Raisins are dried white grapes usually of the variety ‘Muscatel’. The main producers are the USA, Turkey, Greece and Australia.
  • Sultanas are small raisins. They are seedless, sweet, pale golden in colour and come mainly from Turkey.
  • Currants are dried, black, seedless grapes originally produced in Greece. They were known as ‘raisins of the sun’.
