One Thing a Day - Yellow Sultanas in Brandy

I quite regularly from my local Asian store buy these lovely yellow sultanas - I like the colour and the flavour of them - in fact check out your local Asian store as they may have many items that you will use in your baking, like Rosewater, Hunza Apricots, Almonds, Walnuts, Dessicated Coconut etc etc at quite reasonable prices.

Anyway back to the One Thing a Day thing - these Sultanas if soaked in Brandy make a lovely accompaniment to home made vanilla ice cream.  They go lovely and plump.  I also use them in my fruit cake mixtures.


All you do is take a jar, fill the jar to about the neck (room must be given for the sultanas expanding when the brandy is poured on).  Pour on the brandy, seal and leave for a couple of weeks.  Serve with ice cream of your choice, or fill a bramley apple with a little butter, a little brown sugar and some of these raisins and bake in the oven either in a pastry coat or just as they are.

Now how easy is that!

Its the little things that make all the difference.

Catch you all soon.

  4. Hi Rose

    They are very nice with vanilla and honey ice cream too. Go on Rose make some and put them in the pantry with the home made vanilla essence and the other goodies you have been secreting away. A little naughty adult something for the Christmas season and the best thing is its made in minutes its just the maturing that takes the time. I was thinking of trying some with Amaretto. Jury's still out at the moment.

    Hope you are keeping well

    Take care
