Raisin Juice (For Baking Whole Grain, Whole Wheat or Dark Breads

“Many whole grain breads use Raisin Juice to add to their recipes, especially in 7 grain and 12 grain breads. Here is my original recipe. If you want a clear liquid, strain. If you want to use the raisin remains with it, do so since they will be pulverized. This is a good source of iron.”
