Sultanas are dried seedless fruit produced from a species of grapevine grown in Greece, California, Australia and South
They have semi-transparent skins and are pale yellow to golden brown in colour. Sultanas supply energy in the form of sugar, and small amounts of calcium and iron.
Sultanas may be used in steamed puddings, cakes, scones and pickles and to give a fruity flavour and sweetness to curries and other Asian dishes.
In the United States, sultanas are usually known as seedless raisins.
