The Egyptians back in 1490 B.C., found dried grapes on the vines.  Many thought they were old and inedible.  But those who ventured to taste them found them to be sweet and delicious.

Raisins are mentioned in Egyptian writings to be used as food, medicine, sporting contest awards, tax payments and even temple décor.
