What is a Best By Date?

A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality.  It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and useable for a long time. 

Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Use the Food Keeper App on FoodSafety.gov to determine approximately how soon you should consume something after Best By Date.

Raisins are an oatmeal cookie’s best friend! That’s especially true when it comes to Monukka raisins - they add plump sweet, “raisiny” flavor - but they’re not just for cookies. These versatile, nutritious little fruits will perk up a slew of sweet and savory dishes.

While it’s true that most raisins in the US come from commercially grown Thompson grapes, Monukka raisins come from black Monukka grapes that bear the same name. Unlike other raisins, however, their production is limited so they are not as readily available. In fact, they are mostly found at specialty stores and markets as well at natural-food stores.

Monukka raisins are larger than other varieties. They have tiny edible seeds (just a few in each raisin) that give them a nice, healthy little crunch - healthy because grape seeds contain health-promoting polyphenols, aka antioxidants. They keep well when stored in an air-tight container in the pantry, but if you live in a hot, humid climate, they can also be stored in the refrigerator.

We’ve specifically chosen Monukka raisins that come from organically grown, black, seeded Monukka grapes. The grapes are naturally dried in the hot sun which deepens their flavor and concentrates their natural sugars and good nutrition. Pure Indian Food’s Monukka raisins are certified-organically grown, non-GMO, raw and gluten free with NO added sulfites, ever! Use them interchangeably – in place of currants and other dried fruits in just about every recipe. Eat them alone as a delicious snack or try some of these ideas:

  • Bake them into cookies: Raisin cookies, oatmeal cookies, chocolate-chip and raisin cookies, etc., and bar-type cookies
  • Sprinkle over sweet potatoes stuffed with ghee
  • Make raisin-cinnamon ice cream by stirring cinnamon and Monukka raisins into softened ice cream
  • Try them in a delicious carrot-raisin salad
  • Monukka raisins make tasty, fat ants on a log! (Celery stuffed with peanut butter, topped with raisins)
  • Stir them into curry chicken salad
  • Add to favorite hot or cold cereals
  • Make an exotic trail mix with Monukka raisins, goji berries, Hunza raisins, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts and dried unsweetened coconut
  • Sauté spinach with pine nuts and Monukka raisins
  • Add to leafy green salads Add to the blender when making homemade salad dressing
  • Delightful with cooked grains like rice, couscous or quinoa, or cooked grain salads
  • Sweeten muffins, cakes, scones, and quick breads
  • Add them to a spectacular cheese platter – delicious with creamy brie, roasted mixed nuts and a variety of crunchy crackers
  • Pair with vegetable or meat curries
  • Add them to pancakes and waffles
  • Stir into yogurt
  • Melt dark chocolate; pour over Monukka raisins. Add nuts if desired. Scoop into balls, chill until hardened into homemade chocolate raisin “candy”
  • Turn them into delicately-delicious chutney
  • Bake them into your favorite granola recipe

Hi! I'm Sandeep.

I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.

My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.

We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
