Thanks for this recipe Mirj! I use to love raisins as a young child, and then hated them for years. Recently I started wanting raisins in everything since...and I found this recipe and gave it a go! This may not be a recipe for everyone, but its definitely one for me! I really enjoyed it! Thanks for this one! I'll be making it again!
