    I would keep them in a container with a lid in the fridge. I know I'd have fruit flies circling if I left them out.

    They'd probably be floating! icon_lol.gif
    Question: Wouldn't drinking gin and eating raisins have the same alleged effect? And why would nine be the magic number? icon_eek.gif

    And that's exactly why these folk remedies don't work. There's no science and no logic. There is nothing inherently special about golden raisins, or about gin-with-juniper. And there's certainly no difference between nine raisins and ten, or eight.

    My point exactly. I suspect it was originally a way for teetotaling people to enjoy the pain-dulling effects of alcohol without the stigma of drinking. Well, if it works that way, great, there are probably fewer side effects than some other drugs with that tiny amount of alcohol plus the iron in the raisins might beef up the old hemoglobin! icon_lol.gif I truly hope it lives up your expectations, scagwomen! Don't forget to review it, you could help someone else who is considering using it.

    That's why it's a magic number--it's magic! rotfl.gif
