Shostie: What needs to be examined here is not: "why are raisins so disgusting?" but rather: "what is wrong with you people that think delicious and nutritious raisins are disgusting?"


Because raisins look like something old people have dislodged from their esophagus then put it in a bag to dry out to feed to bad children.

You obviously aren't using enough curry.

Oatmeal raisin cookies are terrible! Oatmeal chocolate chip are AMAZING!

And yes, I know it was only seven, but I think all ten were important.

I find that most culinary uses of raisins are acceptable, but especially in desserts... maybe not in ice cream, though. Never had it, but the combination of textures just wouldn't be right.

When I was a kid, my mother occasionally made rice with raisins. Actually not so bad, when paired with the right main dish.

I read where the Raisin Council has their panties in a wad because the Craisin Council is starting to move in heavy on their turf.

Craisin > raisin

If you have a raisin in your nose, clap your hands!

etc.

When fruit goes bad, you are supposed to throw it away.

Same with milk/cream.

unyon: Raisins in oatmeal cookies are delicious.


In some oatmeal cookies. A coworker's roommate made the most amazing cookies. Good enough that we convinced her to bake several batches for money. I'm not normally an oatmeal raisin cookie kind of guy but I would have knocked my grandma down for a batch of those. And my grandma would have understood.

I make a Cuban picodilla with raisins and sundried tomatoes that is awesome, so TFA can kindly step aside.

Raisins are OK but they do not belong in carrot salad. Well, any kind of salad to tell the truth.

I'm listening to The Goon Show and by coincidence one of the actor said "raisins!" just after I typed the word. This happens more often than you might think. It's not the first time for me.
 
2012-11-10 08:13:13 PM
Trail mix. I know they put them in all types of trail mixes, but I always save them for last. Or better yet, I just throw them away. Do they make trail mix without raisins?
 
2012-11-10 08:13:15 PM
Did not read the comments yet, so I apologize if I'm repeating this.
My problem with raisins and other dried fruit IN SOMETHING is the texture. I hate eating something dry then biting down on something squishy and almost juicy.

Raisins on their own are okay from time to time, but if they're IN SOMETHING I will have to pass.

raisins coated in dried yogurt - am i describing it right? they really are good.

i'll not apologize for enjoying raisins. you know what sucks? an empty plate, that's what sucks.

Raisins in (the right) curry is great.
Also on (the right) curry-style pizza.

TheMega: Seriously!!!!! How in the flying Fark are you going to have an oatmeal cookie without raisins in the thing?!? Blehhhh. That's like a chocolate chip cookie full of shiat carob!


FTFY.

Actually, carob is just another name for shiat.

The only time I've ever tolerated raisins in food was when I had Somali food. It was in a beef stew with cinnamon and it was a surprising combination of flavours but it was delicious.

I have always maintained that raisins are a food, not an ingredient.

Ego edo infantia cattus: Wow, I just had a raisin cookie that i thought was chocolate chip about ten seconds before this went green.

/it was gross.


This. I've been burned by this too many times. Now I circle around a plate of "chocolate chip" cookies for a good 30 secs before I take a bite. I sniff, examine, I might even poke. I look like a wolf that just found a slice of prime rib laying in the middle of the forest.

I won't be hurt again!

NewportBarGuy: If you do not enjoy oatmeal raisin cookies, you are worse than Hitler.


Raisins should be NO WHERE near my cookies. EVER! They get to stay with the bran flakes, that's it. And maybe with chocolate or yogurt covering them...but that's it!

Well, fark you then. Raisins are the best things that a grapes can turn into.

Do you remember when they first came out with that ad? Roundly condemned in ubet-lib butthurt circles as racist. This was almost as stupid as the outrage over the racist Jar Jar Binks.

As for raisons, Waldorf Salad, YES.

LordOfThePings: Porous Horace: curry-style pizza

A what now? Do you have a newsletter?


Ali Baba Pizza in Victoria, BC used to have a pizza called "Apu's Curry"

APU'S CURRY - OVEN ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST, RAISINS,
GREEN PEPPERS, RED ONIONS, MUSHROOMS & PINEAPPLE

Hmm.. maybe there's no actual curry in it, but man that was a weird and tasty pizza.
 
2012-11-10 08:35:40 PM
Put me in the group that finds raisins utterly vile. Bot the texture and taste are awful to me. I really can't explain it, but I refuse to eat any food item containing raisins. 

Pineapple is a close second in terms of offensive food ingredients.

I like raisins by themselves or in savory things: couscous, salads, pork chops with apples and raisins, stuffing, curry chicken salad...

I don't like raisins in sweet things except cinnamon raisin bread, and I especially hate them in cookies. The oatmeal raisin cookie is not the worst cookie, but it is the most disappointing cookie because its appearance suggests that it might be the best cookie, the chocolate chip cookie.

Also, no nuts in cookies. Or brownies. No. Wrong and bad.

/I may have some control issues about food.
//I make Chex mix with wheat Chex, butter, worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and seasoned salt. Nothing else. Yes, it's "mix"--I mix the wheat Chex with the other stuff.

Yes. What's that from?

Several youths were arrested for burning down a vineyard. The judge let them off. He said it was just an example of raisin' hell.

Sorry.
