• 1 Cup California raisins
  • 4 whole cloves or 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 piece lemon rind
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Cups milk, apple juice or cold water
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream


Combine raisins, cloves, cinnamon, lemon juice and rind, sugar and milk in saucepan. Bring to boil and simmer until raisins are plump and soft, about 5 minutes. Remove cloves, cinnamon stick and lemon rind. Mix cornstarch with 3 tablespoons cold water and add enough to thicken the soup to the desired consistency. Remove from heat and cool. Just before serving, stir in heavy cream. Serve warm or cold, but serve the day it is prepared.
