If I must use raisins, I use sultanas soaked in rum.

Otherwise I use dried cherries instead.

In fact you can safely replace anything that calls for raisins with dried cherries, and you'll lead a much happier life.

Oh, just noticed we already did salads. NM.

Places raisins do belong?

Raisin bran cereal, of course, oatmeal and raisin cookies as previously discussed and the very best place to find a raisin in the entire world is inside a butter tart.

Warm, fresh from the oven oatmeal raisin cookies are a thing of comfort and joy on a cold day. Likewise rum and raisin cookies. Inside a baked apple? Absolutely. Orange and raisin cinnamon loaf is heavenly. Apple strudel? Yup. Rum and raisin ice cream too, but never, never ever EVER in curry. That's just evil.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When the history of the fall of the United States is written in 2150AD, the historians and archeologists will discover that it was not liberal -vs- conservative, nor collectivist -vs- libertarian, not Democrat -vs- Republican that led to 300,000,000 dead and smoking, slagged ruins where cities once stood.

reubendaley: Who knew dried grapes could be so divisive?

I've had an inkling of this for a few years since I threw some raisins into a homemade apple pie that I baked and brought to an office thanksgiving lunch. Several of the ladies in attendance reacted violently to the idea. In my experience, most people that don't like a particular dish simply don't eat it. I didn't expect expressions of disgust.

I guess either you like 'em or you don't. Sweet, wierd little lumps.

Okay, before adding those dry, rabbit turd-like raisins to your food, pour boiling water over them and let them sit for 5 minutes to plump up. I love golden raisins in savory dishes especially, but only if they are moist.

raisins used in dry cooking such as cookies retain their texture, in breads they become softer.

In wet cooking such as stews, soups, pot roasts, pilafs, etc. they absorb a lot of water and become soft brown spheres that are almost wrinkle free, and are sure to scare many Americans.

Maybe for Thanksgiving I should make some mashed potatoes with currants well enough before hand that they get fully hydrated and see which guests freak out. (Currants are not really currants but instead are rasins made from tiny grapes)

Hey, so here's what I think the problem is: The raisins in baked goods and other confections absorb water. So what you wind up with is a grape in your mouth that feels as though it's suffering from some tragic disease like progeria. And who wants a cookie or a cake that feels like that?

/I always order the rice pudding at indian restaurants just for the golden raisins they put in. They either put them in right before they bring it to the table, or they have those farkers freeze dried to add to let them soak up water to the point where the feel like a regular raisin after sitting in moisture overnight.

I am sorry for you affliction. It must be hell to go through life eating 1970s food smothered in fruit but you can get help. The first step is recognising you have a problem. Put the bacon back beside the eggs where it belongs and STEP AWAY FROM THE PINEAPPLE.

Bathia_Mapes: Marcus Aurelius: unyon: Raisins in oatmeal cookies are delicious.

If I must use raisins, I use sultanas soaked in rum.

Otherwise I use dried cherries instead.

In fact you can safely replace anything that calls for raisins with dried cherries, and you'll lead a much happier life.

Dried cranberries in cookies are pretty tasty too.


One of my favorite holiday cookies is oatmeal cookies with cranberries and white chocolate chunks. I'm not usually a fan of white chocolate, but it works well with cranberries. If you toss in crushed up Macadamia nuts, they're even better.
 
2012-11-10 10:41:16 PM
I LOVE dried fruit. Cherries, cranberries, pineapple, mango, banana, etc. Hell, I even eat fruit leather. And I LOVE grapes. Red seedless grapes, sliced in half and stuck onto a walnut with a dollop of cream cheese is a tedious, but delicious snack. Frozen green grapes is one of my favorite summer snacks.

But I absolutely hate raisins. Always have, always will. I don't understand, but I ain't about to try to fix it.

For a much better dried fruit cookie recipe, see: Chocolate, Toasted Coconut, and Dried Cherry Cookies. The only changes to the recipe is that I use German chocolate, and I tend to triple the recipe volume, because I usually end up eating an entire batch's worth before they've even had a chance to cool. Yes, they are THAT good. Yes, I sound fat.

Peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips tum. With raisins? Not so much. Vice versa for Oatmeal cookies. There is a time and place for everything...

Pro-tip: The next time that you makes peanut better cookies with chocolate chips, about 4-5 minutes before they are done take a mini peanut butter cup and put one on top of each of the cookies (upside down) and let it melt and then cool down. You will thank me later.

Carrot and raisin salad? I like that. Apples, grapes and pecans mixed in with the chicken salad at Arby's? That too. My mother used to add apples and sweet pickles to tuna. I could eat that all day long.

Not a goddamn chance in farking hell, you heathen jackass. I'm from the U.S., and my Coronation Chicken recipe--and I have this written down*--expressly forbids the inclusion of raisins. It's chicken, powdered curry (I add more if I'm feeling daring and wearing a bow tie), mayonnaise, and that's it. I sometimes eat it slightly warm, but always between two deliciously fresh pieces of bread.

*I don't actually have the recipe written down. As with all great recipes, there is room for experimentation--but never goddamn raisins.
