My great grandmother loved raisins. This was one of her favorie recipes. I remember her being in the kitchen. Her bright blue eyes, sweet smile and the wonderful scent of her home. She always had something yummy to eat, it did not matter if she were expecting company or not.Of course she would have no idea what a lap top was or how to share a recipe via e-mail!
