Combine raisins and water in a pot and simmer until raisins are plump and soft (about 20 minutes), stirring frequently.

Top with your favorite "whipped cream" if you want!

(By the way, I don't know why this is called Funeral Pie. It is a traditional Pennsylvania Dutch pie my grandmother used to make.)
