I always eat lunch with my boys when I volunteer at school. The boys take their lunches but like to go through the lunch line to get a cold milk and another fruit if it strikes their fancy. I walked through the line with my twins and saw that one of the fruit choices for the day was sour raisins. I had never heard of them before, have you? Without hesitation, both of them grabbed the little boxes of sour dried fruit. Their little fingers could not wait to open and taste the new fruit choice! The sour raisins were liked. I came home and immediately made my version of them. They twins loved them.
