Which Grocery Store Aisle Are Raisins In?

The section of the store with dried fruits and nuts is the first place to start your search. This may be the snack aisle or even the canned fruit and vegetable aisle.

You can also check the the produce area. Sometimes grocery stores offer raisins and other dried fruits in displays around the fruits and vegetables.

Other times, raisins are kept in the cereal aisle. It's probably best to look by the oatmeal if you're checking this aisle.

Finally, you can check the bulk area. If your grocery store sells bulk products, there's a really good chance that you'll find different varieties of raisins there.

Add Them to Rice

Raisins give spiced rice dishes subtle sweetness and nicely varied textures. Try Indian pulao, vegan rice pilaf and Middle Eastern rice dishes for starters. Don't be afraid to really change up the seasonings and ingredients—raisins work well with nearly any flavor profile.
