I just heard the report regarding the California Raisin Administrations restrictions on the sale of raisins and found it very interesting. I've been a contestant twice in the California Raisin Bread Contest promoted by California Raisin Organization in Fresno, Ca.
Just in case anyone would like to continue the story of California Raisins, this years contest is going to be held in Las Vegas, NV and invites top chefs to create and present their best recipe using at least 50% raisins to flour weight.
You've never taste such delicious breads, breakfast treats and gluten free recipes that use healthy raisins in any form.
