This sweet, yet tangy sauce is a nice complement to ham, or other meats. Raisins are simmered with brown sugar, dry mustard and vinegar.

Everyone at the dinner loved this sauce over the ham. It wasn't thickening for me at first so I added a teaspoon of cornstarch and that did the trick. I also used golden raisins and a little more of them than the recipe called for. Very good. Read More

This raisin sauce is delicious and perfect for ham. It reminds me of the raisin sauce my own Grandmother use to make. All of my children and grandchildren were impressed and that is hard to do. Read More

This sauce was so good I hated to throw it out after the ham was gone. I made it exactly as written and will use this as my default raising sauce from now on. I did wonder how long it would take to thicken. So after realizing that it just wasn't going to get "thick" I took it off the heat and let it cool. It thickened as it cooled. It was perfect!

Reviews helped to clarify thickening. I only used 1.5 cups of water added 2 T. If butter and 3/4c of dried cranberries along with the raisins. I drizzled it over stuffed pork chops. Yummy! Read More
