History of Raisins

Researchers have believed that raisins were found by accident since 2000 BC. The grapes were left on the vine and withered in the sun. The ancients tried these dried fruits and then raisins were born. Raisins have used as decorations in the Mediterranean regions of Europe. Raisin making began to increase between 120 and 900 BC. During this time, the Phoenicians began growing grapes in the warm climates of Spain and Greece. These growing areas are the perfect climate for raisin production. These locations are also close to the first raisins markets including Greece and Rome. Different variations of raisins also began to appear during this time. From Spain, muscat raisins are extremely popular and feature oversized seeds and full fruit flavors. From Greece, the more common raisins are raisins, which are smaller, seedless and fragrant.

Raisins are consumed with the large quantities by the Greeks and Romans. Therefore, raisins are very popular and the value also increases. Raisins are given as prizes in sports competitions, as currency for trade, and often as a medicine for ailments such as mushroom poisoning. Although very popular, raisins don't go much outside of the Mediterranean region. Transport methods do not keep grapes fresh for longer journeys than necessary. In the 11th century, this changed when the knights returned from the crusades. These knights brought raisins and made them become popular in Northern Europe. Transport methods were improved at the time to allow these knights to once again eat their raisins.

By the mid-14th century, raisins had become an important part of European cuisine. In 1374, the price of raisins was extremely high and they were valued at 2 pence and 3 farts per pound. To keep prices down, many Britons tried to grow their own grapes to make raisins but quickly realized their cold, humid climate was not ideal for growing and drying raisins. This love of grapes and raisins spread to the Americas as they were conquered by Europeans, and raisins quickly became a global favorite.
