Infused raisins - lovely afternoon snack

With my little darlings being home each day I have the tricky task of coming up with new and exciting snacks for our afternoon down time. 

I had started buying Nakd infused raisins as a treat for myself but the Little People also liked them very much so my treats were often gone by the time I was reaching for them.

This week, having come across a bag of raisins in the baking cupboard, I thought I'd have a go at making my own infused raisins, and at a fraction of the price I had paid for my little bags!

I have to say I didn't think it'd be this is but it really is. I simply put some raisins in a dish and covered with fresh apple juice and left to soak for about 24hrs

After soaking I drained the juice and was left with lovely, plump, juicy raisins to try out on my little ones, they loved them and ate the lot in a matter of minutes. I did get to try a couple myself and they were delicious! We have made them each day since and are experimenting with other juice flavours. Unlike the store bought ones the raisins were juicy rather than dry, I'd like to say I'm going to try leaving them to dry out after draining but I can't imagine these yummy raisins being left long enough to dry out again!
