Q: I read a recent column about golden raisins soaked in gin. I tried these a few years ago and wrote to you about them. I also told you that I didn't use gin, but instead soaked the raisins in a combination of apple-cider vinegar and honey.
I do hope you tell people about that option. It is important for people who either don't drink alcohol or shouldn't. It's also less expensive, for those who can't afford gin.
The alternative worked wonders, not just for me, but also for others I know about. Recovering alcoholics in particular should know of the alternative…
