Raisin Chutney

Considering that my family has grown grapes in California for the sole purpose of providing raisins to dried fruit lovers, I have a strong affinity for the dried gems of nutrition.

Always on the lookout for new ways to cook with raisins, I was thrilled to find this raisin-based recipe in the raw food cookbook Gorilla Food: Living and Eating Organic, Vegan, and Raw by the charismatic chef Aaron Ash who has a raw vegan restaurant named Gorilla Food in Vancouver. If you can’t frequent the celebrity-sought eatery, get your hands on Ash’s cookbook.
