Q: I have been doing a lot of baking recently and, in the spirit of bulk buying, purchased more than a pound of raisins. I'm not a big fan of eating raisins straight, and I seem to have exhausted a lot of my raisin baked good recipes, so I'm wondering if there are any canning or preserving ideas for using up a lot of raisins.
