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?"

costermonger: Get your farking hands off my oatmeal raisin cookies!


THIS.

I would like to toss two more entrants for Fark's consideration into this "places raisins don't belong" debate.

1) Salads. 2) Stuffing.

Seriously, people need to stop doing that.

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)

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.

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.

So, a lot of people on fark are backwards, un-sophisticated, never-developed-an-adult-taste-bud-in-their-lives, basement dwellers from Bumfark, USA. And want to be funny about it. We get it.

Spiralmonkey: Porous Horace: Raisins in (the right) curry is great.
Also on (the right) curry-style pizza.

You sound like the kind of sick puppy who thinks its OK to put pineapple on pizza too. There is no place for fruit on pizza, not even in Hawaii. Maybe possibly in hell...


WHAT? What is your Damage? Hawaiian Delight (Canadian bacon and pineapple) pizza is TEH BOMB.

Almost as divine as shrimp and onion.

Last night we celebrated something and went to Mongolian BBQ, Had pork with pineapple in one of the bowls (I had 6 bowls). I thought the lady running the place was gonna go John Pinette on me Link

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.

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

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!

So much this.

It's not that I dislike oatmeal raisin cookies.

It's that I hate that icy cold dagger in my back for making me think I was getting chocolate chip.

RAISINS BETRAY!
