What is the recipe for raisins in gin treatment of arthritis? How long should the raisins soak before using? How many do ingest daily?

I'd like to have the recipe for the gin soaked golden raisins as well please.

I would like the recipe for gin-soaked raisins for arthritis. How many should be ingested daily? Thanks

Years ago I read your article in our Seattle paper that stated (my comments are in parenthesis):

Place golden raisins in a pie pan, keep covered with low quality gin (has more impurities) for a week. (This uses up a lot of gin). Then let the raisins dry out for two weeks, turning occasionally. After the three week process is over, place in covered container and eat 9 raisins daily.

Since then I've seen recipes ranging from one week to three so I imagine that is the reason why some people do not get the benefit from the raisins. The more impurities (my guess is the juniper berries) that are evaporated from the gin, the better.

This remedy has worked for my stiff finger joints for years. It only takes about a month off the raisins for me to start having problems closing the fingers in my right hand.

I am doing the gin soaked raisins and found it helps my stiff joints. I buy a good quality gin and soak the raisins for a week and eat nine a day. I talked to the owner of the liquor store and he finds that the people are buying the cheaper gin. I read a article that good quality gin should be bought for the quality of the juniper berries.
