Raisins or kishmish are made with grapes, it is prepared by dehydrating the grape.The following are the steps to make it:
1. Use fresh green or purple grapes. Be sure they are fresh, ripe, not mushy or otherwise blemished. Check the grapes carefully.
2.Remove the larger stems from the grapes and wash them thoroughly. Do not remove all grapes from the stems.
3.Place them on a tray. Use a wooden, wicker, bamboo, or plastic tray that is slatted, so air can circulate around the fruit.
4.Place them outside in a dry sunny place (this requires warm, dry weather). If your climate produces night fogs or dew, take the trays inside at night.
5.Let them sit out in the sun for 2-3 days, or until dry (taste test). Rotate the fruit and/or trays to ensure even exposure to the sun.
6. Remove dried grapes gently from the remaining stems and store in a dry airtight container in a cool place.
