Sometimes very old recipes are the best. This recipe comes from a cook book printed in the 50s and I still prefer this to recent recipes.


  • 1 1/4 cups raisins
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1/2 lemon, juice and rind


  • Wash raisins.
  • Cover with boiling water; cook below boiling until plump.
  • Mix sugar and cornstarch; add to raisins; stir and cook until thick.
  • Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • Add lemon juice and rind.
  • Bake between two prepared crusts at 400º until crust is golden between 45 and 60 minutes depending on your oven.
