raisins soaked in gin?

Posted by Bill D on 2/17/02 at 23:02 (074086)

Anybody have good results from this alternative medicine therapy?
My uncle swears by it. He's had chronic ankle tendonitis for 5 years. After 2 weeks of eating raisins soaked in gin, he's completely pain free.
Might be worth a try!!!!

Is it the raisins?

Or the Gin?

Probably sweet potatoes soaked in tequila would do the same thing?

Just my thoughts....

skip the rasins and potatoes and go striaght to the gin (Emerald preferably). less calories and faster progress.

Carmen I am sure you have had rum cake which probably had rasins.

I don't like Gin. Actually I'm not big on tequila either. Red wine though.....

A big family joke when I was married was that every year I would make rumballs and get drunk from the fumes. I don't drink, so nearly anything will do it. Making rumballs was definitely the jolliest part of Christmas for me! I would wait until all the other preparations were pretty much done a few days before Christmas, and then make rumballs and play Christmas carols and unwind by candlelight enjoying the Christmas tree. And even eat some rumballs too, though by then it didn't matter.

Old memories. (happy smile)
