Here’s what you need:
Honey (preferably unfiltered)
Place the raisins in a container, and drizzle honey on top (I usually use 1/3 cup per box of raisins but you can adjust this to your taste). Pour enough white vinegar on top of the raisins to barely cover them, and set the bowl somewhere safe where the vinegar can evaporate off. Store the raisins in a covered container.
Eat 9 to 12 of these raisins daily for optimum pain relief.
