Sultanas of swing: Sun-dried raisin sandwich

I am sure kids in Australia were jumping with glee knowing their mothers made them a “sultana raisin currant” sandwich for lunch. I guess that’s the easy way to make a raisin bread. What no cinnamon sprinkles?

“Lift lunches out of everyday. Add the chewy “eat ’em all up” flavour and goodness of sun-dried sultanas, raisins or currants. They’re wonderful in sandwiches by themselves or combined with other fillings. Also, you’re providing abundant low-cost minerals and vitamins—calcium, iron, thiamine, niacin, and riboflavin.” (Weird Universe) The Australian Women’s Weekly-March 29, 1967 ad.

Sneaky bastards, they finally got you eating those raisins when your mom included a tiny red box of raisins in your lunch box.  Little did mom know the little red boxes made great whistles to annoy your teachers. Thanks, mom!

Fun Fact: Sun-Maid introduces the first licensed raisin bread in 1980.
