For some Amish families, raisins were an important staple in their pantry. Cooked in oatmeal for breakfast and of-course oatmeal raisin cookies.
Raisins were often used as snacks for toddlers to eat during the long church services.
Some families seemed to be particularly fond of raisin pie, so fond in fact that they served them at weddings.
There were two variations of raisin pie, one with a custard type filling that was loaded with raisins. The other was simply raisins that were plumped in hot water and thickened with clearjel. None of which I found appealing.
