Raisins and currants bring a literal pop of sweetness and surprising texture to savory and sweet dishes alike, and there is evidence that they may also add a boost to human health. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and other healthy components like flavonoids, and resveratrol. They may help maintain healthy blood pressure, combat cancer, and control glucose levels in diabetes.
For a satisfying sweet and savory side dish, try this recipe for Basmati Pilaf. The recipe was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She began sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic and it has since become a company tradition.
