Makes: 2 cups

  • One 8-ounce box raisins
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  1. Put the raisins in a small heatproof bowl.
  2. Combine the white wine vinegar, sugar, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, bay leaf, salt, and onion in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil gently for a minute or two, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Pour the brine over the raisins. Refrigerate overnight before using. The pickled raisins will keep for 2 weeks or more, tightly covered in the refrigerator.
