Sultanas are made from green grapes. Raisins are made from dark grapes.

According to (see related links, below), the generic term for a dried grape is '''raisin'''. A '''Sultana''' is a particular type of raisin. Compared to a regular raisin a sultana is lighter in colour, sweeter and more moist, and less acidic.

Originally, Sultanas were produced in Turkey, from the Sultana variety of grape. Nowadays, they are produced from the same variety of grapes as other raisins but by a different process. They are treated with sulphur dioxide and heated artificially. Other raisins are allowed to dry and darken in the sunlight.

A heated debate exist between lovers of Sultana's and Raisins. Personally, I believe that raisins are considerably tastier and sultanas are icky. But Anna who is sitting here thinks that sultanas are better.
