These are delicious, but I did steam the raisins ( to keep all nutritional value ) for a few minutes to plumb them and added a pinch of cloves. This is a keeper recipe !

I have found that if you bring the raisins to a boil in water, then take off the stove, then put them into baking recipes, they are plumper and taste better than if just using them straight out of the package.
