This is the sentence from Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe": '... raisins, which were healthful and refreshing to the last degree. I guess what it could mean, but can anyone tell me the meaning of this sentence literally? thank you very much

It is a superlative. So it means

... raisins, which were healthful and refreshing to the greatest extent possible.

or (as a more simple superlative)

... raisins, which were the most healthful and refreshing.
