My mom served this sweet little sauce as a warmed condiment for our ham every Easter. It's easy, unique and tasty! You can make it earlier, and re-heat it, but it's best right off the stove!

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together the pineapple juice with cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat, and stir in the dry mustard powder, red currant jelly, raisins, and pineapple. (Lumps of jelly will dissolve as mixture heats.) Bring the sauce to a boil, stirring constantly, and simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Keep raisins stirred into sauce as it cooks so they don't burn. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes

I found myself without currant jelly, but had a can of jellied cranberry sauce. One half cup of it worked, but wasn't quite as good.

Increase the mustard a bit for a hotter sauce.

I wanted a simple but tasty sauce as an alternative to parsley sauce. This was delicious. I used slightly more raisins than suggested but think that next time I'll do it exactly as stated. I preferred only a slight hint of mustard to taste. It is very easy to make - just make sure you stir it as you cook to prevent burning. Read More

I made it with coconut milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and it worked well. Read More

Very good recipe, except the 1/2 cup of dry mustard did not seem right, so I used 1/2 teaspoon. Otherwise, this recipe was just the right touch of tangy, fruity deliciousness to add to ham. Read More
