It was delicious. But when I first made it, it turned to gel. I had to add another cup of water to thin it out. The cornstarch should be cut in half. When I made it a second time. I used only half the amount of cornstarch the recipe called for and it turned out perfect. Maybe the recipe has a type-o. Maybe she meant to type 2 teaspoons instead of tablespoons.
This is not a very good sauce, unfortunately. It's basically brown sugar and mustard. Sorry.
I made this twice and it is very good. The second time, I made it a day ahead to save time. Mistake! Once I re-heated the sauce, it was very, very thick and it took a lot of additional water to make it barely acceptable. Still very good, but this sauce should not be served that thick. But this was due to user error. In the future, I will have all of the ingredients ready to go and make it just before the ham is ready to come out of the oven.
Yum! I halved the cornstarch and it came out perfect.
I used this recipe twice. It is beautiful! Word of warning: the first time I cooked it ahead of time (same day of meal) thinking that when I warmed it up for the meal, that it would look and feel the same...wrong! It was lumpy and kind of gross-looking...I didn't add water as others have done because I was afraid to affect the taste. So I served it lumpy and people still liked it! The second time I prepared it shortly before the meal and kept it warm on the stove and that worked out perfectly. Delicious sauce!
I thought this recipe was awesome. I noticed some reviews thought the sauce was too thick, so I reduced the cornstarch to 1Tbls. I had never had raisin sauce before so I asked my brother-in-law how it was and he said "not thick enough". Must be a personal thing. I think I will make it again just as I did tonight
Very very good! Instead of using water and the brown sugar, I used the juice from the slow cooker ham recipe on this site. Yummy!!
This was tasty and easy to make. I didn't have any lemon juice or rind, so I used orange juice instead. I also skipped the mustard. I wanted it sweet.
