Pineapple Raisin Sauce

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Serve this with warm or cold ham slices. I tweaked several recipes to come up with this one. Make it a day ahead so the raisins can plump. Our family likes a subtle clove flavor, but add more cloves if you like it spicier."

It was very delicious but you can't let it sit at all before serving as it really congealed.

Made it without the raisins - Picky Eaters - but it worked out lovely - I saw another review that said it congealed, but I did not have that happen as it was piping hot when served - All my Xmas...

I didn't have all the pineapple juice required, subbed in 1/2 orange juice...wonderful
