Everyone at the dinner loved this sauce over the ham. It wasn't thickening for me at first so I added a teaspoon of cornstarch and that did the trick. I also used golden raisins and a little more of them than the recipe called for. Very good.

1 tablespoon of flour isn't enough to thicken 3 1/4 cups of flour. this was just a soupy mess!

Great quick easy raisin sauce using all the simple ingredients in your cabinet

This raisin sauce is delicious and perfect for ham. It reminds me of the raisin sauce my own Grandmother use to make. All of my children and grandchildren were impressed, and that is hard to do.

delicious!! but, the sauce did not thicken even though I added an extra tablespoon of flour. The flavor is great.Did anyone else have this problem?

This was a new recipe for me and I really liked the flavor. I also had to use cornstarch to thicken.

Lost my family's recipe for Raisin Sauce and this comes very close. Loved it on ham slices.

This sauce was so good, I hated to throw it out after the ham was gone. I made it exactly as written and will use this as my default raising sauce from now on. I did wonder how long it would take to thicken. So after realizing that it just wasn't going to get "thick" I took it off the heat and let it cool. It thickened as it cooled. It was perfect!
