Hi, I would like to make Nigella's Sicilian Pasta With Tomatoes, Garlic and Almonds and I am struggling to find golden sultanas anywhere. Do you have any recommendations as to where I will be able to find these? Many thanks, Jacob
Nigella's Sicilian Pata With Tomates, Garic And Almonds (from Nigellissima and on the Nigella website) has an uncooked sauce made with cherry tomatoes, garlic, almonds, anchovies, capers, olive oil and sultanas. The sultanas add a slightly sweet note to balance out the some of the salty and sharp ingredients. Nigella lists golden sultanas in the ingredients as their bright colour stands out a little once the ingredients have been roughly chopped in the food processor.
If you live in the US then golden sultanas are sold as golden raisins and can be found in many supermarkets (you can look for the Sun Maid packs) and natural food stores. In the UK they can be a little more difficult to find but you can buy them in some Waitrose branches and in some health food stores. They can also be bought on-line. Otherwise you could use regular sultanas, or even raisins, as an alternative.
