- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/4 tsp salt

Prepare pastry. Combine sugar, water, raisins and salt in saucepan. Cut half the lemon into thin slices, then into quarters, remove seeds and add to raisin and sugar mixture. Bring to boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Blend butter with flour and add to raisin mixture, stirring to keep smooth. Bring this mixture to boil and cook until thick – about 3 minutes. Add juice from remaining half lemon.
