RAISINS ( tsimmûqîm , Numbers 6:3 [EV [Note: English Version.] ‘dried grapes’], 1 Samuel 25:18; 1 Samuel 30:12 , 2Sa 16:1 , 1 Chronicles 12:40; ’ăsh îshîm , Hosea 3:1 RV [Note: Revised Version.] , etc.; see Flagon). Raisins are now, as of old, prepared in great quantities in the Holy Land; the bunches are dipped in a strong solution of potash before being dried. Es-Salt , across the Jordan, has long been famous for the excellence of its stoneless raisins.
