I don't like raisins that much, although they are fine in picadillo. Where called for in other recipes, we substitute currents.

Exactly right Addie. Ick.

However I rather like golden raisins.

Interesting now that I think of it......

black raisins=red grapes

golden raisins=white grapes

Makes sense now, I can't stand red wine, but really enjoy white wine.

I don't drink alcohol, but I can understand your reference to it. I don't like red grapes myself. But I will eat green ones. And once in Texas I had a jar of grape jelly ferment into alcohol. My neighbor is the one who discovered it. After that I never bought another jar of jelly. No matter how much my kids liked PB&J sandwiches. I won't even buy grape juice because of that.
