I'm not a huge fan of raisins, but I couldn't resist picking up a large bag of these green wonders when I bumped into them at Hötorgshallen. Green raisins taste really differently from ordinary ones. They're much more fruity, less sweet and much more.. oh, un-raisiny. (Great explanation, huh?)
Green raisins are also called kishmish, and generally come from Iran, Afganistan or Pakistan. They're green because they're dried in the shade, and not in the sun.
Anyway. They're great. And I have other great news - the kittens are born! I'll tell you all more tomorrow for Weekend Cat Blogging, for now I'll just report that there's five beautiful little kits, and mom Gisele is doing great. Mommy Anne is tired though, there has been little to no sleep at all these past few days. But it's all worth it.. :)
