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’.
