This recipe is found in my cookbook "A Pinch, A Dash and A Pocketful Of Cash" by Anna French of course!! Which you can find on and !!!
This is a typical side dish in Rio, Brasil. We do a lot of BBQ's on the weekends, in reality everything in Rio is a reason to heat up the grill!!!! I had to bring this same tradition here to Miami. My fiance had never eaten this before however, now he is crazy about. So this is a must in our household, regardless of BBQ or not!!

Thanks Pam. I will just use the raisens as is and not worry about it. I love raisens and this recipe looks great so it's all good.

Gilda, Any "seedless" raisin will work. When it says "pitted" it just means that the seeds have been removed before drying the grapes to make the raisins. I am not sure if you can even find raisins that still have the seeds in them. They used to sell some raisins that did have seeds. No idea why anyone would use them though.
