Plumped Raisins???

Sometimes a recipe calls for "plumped" raisins (as in Val's stuffing recipe)...

Evidently raisins used to be "drier" than most we get today, so if you are using a fresh package you may be able to skip this step.

But it's easy to "plump" your raisins...just soak them in some warm liquid, water or the apple juice for the stuffing. You could heat in the microwave a bit, let them sit for 15 minutes or so, then drain them. They are more tender and yummy!
