Anyone who knows me knows that I have an abnormal trust issues, so I’ll just cut to the chase.
I don’t trust raisins.
Everyone knows that raisins are 8 times out of 10 just little turds floating around in desserts disguising themselves as chocolate chips.
More often than not, the raisins end up being a massive disappointment. I will not sugar coat it. As a matter of fact, on second thought I will, because raisins can sometimes be so off-putting that they will need a pound of sugar (and butter and flour) to make them taste even remotely OK.
So, instead of crying as you bite into that slice o’ raisin pie (vile) or take a spoonful of carrot raisin slaw (gag), indulge in these recipes instead that make raisins so, so, so much better.
