Easy Raisin Sauce for Ham


This raisin sauce for ham is easy and inexpensive to make. This recipe came from my mother and has always been one of my favorites. It's wonderful for glazing the top of the ham during the last 30 minutes of cooking, or you can serve it with the finished ham.

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ¾ cup raisins

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Stir in raisins, then reduce the heat to medium and boil until raisins are very tender, about 5 minutes.

  2. Whisk in brown sugar and salt, then gradually whisk in cornstarch to avoid lumps forming. Simmer over low heat until glaze has thickened, about 10 minutes.
