Sultanas anyone?? They are an ingredient in one of Alyssa's recipe from her book Living on Live Food. I am clueless as to what they are and can anything else be substituted for them???
What food class are they in??? :confused:

hmm I've never heard of them either. But I googled and heres what I came up with. looks to me like they are a little grape, would that make sense?
That's what we in England call your 'plump white raisins'. You could substitute any raisins for them...

In Denmark there are two kind of raisins, the dark ones and then the sultanas which are a little lighter. The only difference is that sultanas is a little sweeter and more pronounced in taste. If you need it for a recipe I don't think it would make much of a difference if you use raisins instead.. Good luck!

I swap them and mix them. I can even buy them already mixed.

Just as an FYI thing most sultana's are treated with Sulfer Dioxide. That is how they retain the lighter color than the typical raisin. Alot of folks are sensitive to Sulfer Dioxide!

You may find sultanas packaged as "golden raisins".
