Do you know what is cool about North America and Europe? When you buy raisins, the stems are already taken out of them and they are clean. I just spent an hour watching Oprah** and destemming a kilo of raisins so that I can boil them to clean them, and then use them in Moose Balls (haha… I laugh a lot every time I say it), my favourite Christmas treat.
Be thankful for your stem-less, clean raisins.
**Is it just me or is Oprah becoming really annoying? It’s like she wants me to want her off the air. She has to yell-sing her guests onto the stage, every time. “It’s Docto Oooooooooooz… Oooooz…… OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOZ!” Stop your yell-singing, Oprah, I don’t like it. Neither do the raisins.
