The name Sultanas, also called Raisins, comes from "sultan". A legend told in the Middle East, states that dried grapes were invented by chance when the sultan had to abandon the grapes he was eating in the sun to escape from a tiger and when he returned to take it back he noticed that it was darkened and improved in flavor, since then the dried grapes were called "sultana".

Once dried, the raisins take amber shades, and the pulp remains firm. In fact, this grape is small in size, ellipsoidal, yellow or golden in color and contains a crunchy pulp. In natural form, it already has a very sweet and not very complex taste, while the skin is thin, with little pruina and easy to chew.

It is a seedless grape, seedsless as indicated in English, and for this reason used both in fresh consumption and for use in pastry.

In the kitchen 

Raisins can be eaten "naturally" but it is used in the kitchen especially as an ingredient for many desserts, from strudel to muffins passing through some delicacies typical of the Christmas holidays.

Sultanas under grappa: Strudel

Sultanas in this alcoholic version are often used in strudel filling or to garnish apple pie and plum cake.

Strudel is a typical dessert of Trentino Alto Adige, but its origins are Turkish. The Turks, who dominated Hungary around the seventeenth century, prepared a similar apple cake called baklava. This recipe was varied and transformed by the Hungarians into the current strudel that soon took hold in Austria which, in turn, dominating for a certain period some territories of Northern Italy, introduced them to this delicious dessert. Trentino Alto Adige is now the repository of the secrets of the preparation of strudel, which here has had considerable success thanks to the numerous apple crops in its territory, which are the fundamental ingredient of the filling of this roll of pasta, together with raisins, pine nuts and cinnamon. In this recipe we propose the variety of Golden apples, but the original recipe involves the use of renette. Prepare the apple strudel, enjoy it with a steaming cup of mulled wine, and inebriate yourself with its intense aroma!



  • - Flour 00 130g 
  • - Water 30ml
  • - Seed oil 1 tablespoon 
  • - Eggs 54g
  • - Salt 1 pinch 
  • - Apples 750g
  • - Sugar 60g
  • - Breadcrumbs 60g
  • - Butter 50g 
  • - Raisins 50g
  • - Pine nuts 25g
  • - Cinnamon powder 1 teaspoon
  • - Rum 2 tablespoons
  • - Lemon zest 1


For the preparation of apple strudel, start from the dough: in a bowl pour the sifted flour and salt; then add the egg, water and start kneading with your hands. Then add the oil and knead the mixture again until you get a homogeneous dough. If it turns out to be too sticky you can add another 10-20 g of flour at most. 

Then transfer the dough to a plane and work it until it is elastic. When you are done, form a ball and transfer it to a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for an hour in the cool. Meanwhile, soak the raisins in rum, or if you prefer, in warm water; in a pan melt 50g of butter and when sizzle toast the breadcrumbs.

Mix with a wooden spoon so that it does not burn and let it brown for a few minutes, then turn off the heat and let it cool. Then peel the apples, removing the core, and cutting them into four wedges and then into thin slices; pour the apples into a large bowl and add the sugar, pine nuts, grated lemon zest, a pinch of cinnamon and the raisins well drained and squeezed: the ingredients must release their aromas, but they must not macerate for a long time so that the sugar does not release too much water.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Then take the dough dough and roll it out on a lightly floured cloth, forming a rectangle. Brush the surface, except the edges, with a little melted butter and sprinkle with toasted breadcrumbs; this layer will serve to absorb the juices that the apples will release during cooking.

Place the mixture with the apples on top of it; roll the strudel from the longest part, being careful not to break the dough (you can help with the cloth on which it is placed); seal it well even on the sides, so that the contents do not come out during cooking.

Then place the strudel on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, with the closure facing down and, before baking, brush it with melted butter. Bake the strudel in a preheated static oven at 200 ° for about 40 minutes (if ventilated at 180 ° for 30 minutes). When cooked 24, you can sprinkle the strudel with icing sugar and serve warm and cut into slices.
