    Buster's friend's Note:

    From those raisin guys @ the California Raisin Marketing Institute - they credit the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Made these over the grill Memorial weekend - the burst of sweet-crunch the dab of raisin/nuts give in the center nicely balances the flavorful richness of the meat. They grill fast & are eaten up faster - some folks sprinkled a bit of sea salt on them but most of use thought they were perfect as is - balanced by a Fattoush salad, salty with kalamata olives & feta. Servd as appetizer - need to triple recipe next time - it was that good!

      A fragrant dish! I thought the spices might be a bit much, but they were not. We made this exctly as written, and thought it was wonderful! We served it with a variety of Mediterranean type dishes: dolmas, Greek yogurt, raw veggies, and everything was complementary. Next time we will serve it with rice, chutney and raitas.

      These were excellent! I usually don't like cumin and therefore decreased the amount I used for this. I wouldn't have had to do that as the mixture was not overly spiced and the proportions as written would have been perfect. The kebabs were very flavorful. Mine held together well as I took Buster's friend's recommendation to form the kebabs with the meat close to room temperature. I did not use as much oil as indicated in sauteing the garlic and ginger and then grilled.
