Some of the recipes I am going to try include raisins. The only ones I can find have a fine layer of vegetable oil covering them as preservative. Would this interfere with the wine quality. Even after rinsing them several times there is still a film of oil in the rinsing water. Any advice please.

Rinse well under hot water, chop them up and they'll be fine. Sunmaid have an all natural product available with no oil, they are the darker raisins.

Are there any "Whole Foods" or health stores near you? They should have something.

It used to be that all you could get in a raisin range was ones preserved with oil and sulpher fumes. I've used this type of raisins in wine with no issues,

just wash well in hot water, get them as oil free as possible before using.
