Dried Grapes (Homemade Raisins)

Dried Grapes (Homemade Raisins)

Instead of eating fresh seedless grapes (Delaware grapes), I wanted to make raisins to preserve them. They're very easy to make.

Ingredients

Seedless grapes (I used Delaware grapes)
3 bunches
Salt
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Remove the grapes from the stem, put them in a bowl, fill it with water until the grapes are completely covered, add salt and gently wash them.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, after draining the excess water, lay the grapes in a single layer on the baking sheet, taking care not to overlap.
3. Bake in the oven at 100°C for 90 minutes. To prevent uneven cooking, rotate the baking tray, and bake at 100°C for another 90 minutes.
4. Keep an eye on them, making sure that they do not burn or become too dry. After each check, bake for 20-30 minutes, repeating this step about 4 times.
5. If the grapes stick to the parchment paper, use a spatula to remove them.
6. If possible, sun-dry the grapes for 2 days beforehand, and the grapes will wrinkle up. This will prevent them from sticking to the parchment paper while baking.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received a lot of seedless grapes as a gift, so I thought of making these.
