    DH said his mom never put raisins in the fridge, but my mom always did. Who is right?

    lately we always put it to the fridge after opening to maintain the freshness.

    What is the best way to store raisins?
    Cool storage is the best way to keep raisins. After the package has been opened they should be put in a sealed container and refrigerated. Raisins will retain their flavor, color, and nutritive value if stored in the refrigerator. They can be kept even longer if frozen. Raisins will thaw quickly at room temperature. If raisins become dry due to improper storage, rinse them in tap water to dissolve the sugar crystals and restore the moisture.
