"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Mom always made this on Christmas Eve for us, the raisins give it a nice sweet flavor. In the old days they used salted cod or baccala.

Note: If you want to use salt cod, soak it in a water bath for at least 12 hours, changing the water every 3-4 hours until flesh is soft to the touch, then rinse well before using.
