Welp heck Baker,
As usual ya'll Aussies always have to go your own way LOL....
To me a dried grape is a friggin raisin - as it is to most of the world:
Raisins are dried grapes. They are produced in many regions of the world, such as Armenia, the United States, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Macedonia, Mexico, Greece, Syria, Turkey, India, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, China, Afghanistan, Togo, and Jamaica, as well as South Africa and Southern and Eastern Europe. Raisins may be eaten raw or used in cooking and baking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raisin
Although, Im sure someone like Wal will have a different scope on this subject...
Vino es Veritas,
Jim aska Waldo.
