Poutine aux Raisins



Poutine aux Raisins is a steamed raisin pudding made in the Acadian area of Canada.

The pudding mixture is made from flour, baking powder, salt, raisins, molasses, egg and water mixed together.

The mixture is placed in a large, clean, empty tin (in lieu of a pudding basin), and then set in a pot on a trivet or something to keep the tin off the bottom of the pot. The pot is then filled with boiling water coming half-way up the side of the tin and covered.

The pudding is steamed for around 1 1/2 hours, then served with a sauce such as a simple caramel sauce.

Older versions would actually put the pudding mixture into a cloth bag, and then the bag into the water. When cooked this way, it becomes one of the many possible recipes for Poutine en Sac.

"Anti-alcoholics are unfortunates in the grip of water, that terrible poison, so corrosive that out of all substances it has been chosen for washing and scouring, and a drop of water added to a clear liquid like Absinthe, muddles it."

-- Alfred Jarry (French writer. 8 September 1873 – 1 November 1907)
