This is one of the first recipes I included in the column several years ago. It is a sandwich my mother made for every dinner-on-the-grounds at church.
Raisin-Nut Sandwich Spread
1 cup sugar
juice of 1 large lemon
Mix these three ingredients in a medium pot and cook on stovetop until it thickens. Allow to cool, then add
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup raisins
Stir until well mixed. Keep refrigerated.
