Be a Raisin Ambassador

April 19, 2013

Great recipes using California raisins from our blogger friends.


To celebrate one of our favorite foods–California raisins–we teamed up with the California Raisin Marketing Board. In addition to our recipe contest, we teamed up with 9 of our favorite bloggers to help trumpet the attributes of raisins. They came up with all sorts of recipes, tucking raisins into everything from snack mix to coleslaw to lamb burgers to bread pudding. Check the recipes out below, and while you’re there, take a peek at the bloggers sites, and tell them Relish sent you.
