Five large crackers rolled fine, one and a half cups molasses, one-half cup sugar, two-thirds cup vinegar, two cups chopped raisins, one-half cup butter, one and a half cups cold water, a little salt, one teaspoon each all kinds of spices. Put all together and cook until thick. This will make four PIEs. — Mrs. L. A. Grover.
