Easy Raisin Sauce for Ham


"This recipe came from my mother. Has always been one of my favorites! VERY easy...and inexpensive too! This is wonderful added to the top of the ham the last 30 minutes of the cooking time, or you can simply serve it with the ham in a small bowl. I hope you enjoy it."

It is an wonderful and tasty recipe.

Delicious and easy! I added 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for a little more flavor. Mmmmmmm good.

I LOVE it!! I am not a fan of raisins nor really sweet Sauces but this recipe is FANTASTIC!! It is so easy and has a perfect, not-too-sweet, flavor! I will always make this on holidays

I will definitely make it again. It tasted exactly like the raisin sauce my Grandma used to make. Delicious!!!

I added a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of ground cloves, 2 pinches of nutmeg and a small squirt of yellow mustard. Delicious.
