WOW! Just what I was looking for. This sauce was EXCELLENT, especially with ham! Reminds me of what I used to get at a colonial restaurant that has resently shut down. The only thing I would say is that the recipe served closer to 12 people (not 4-6). Thanks for posting Mille!

WOW this recipe is really good, the only thing I changed was the amount of sugar to 1/4- 1/2 cup because it was too sweet with the raisins and I reduced the raisins to 1/4c because my children don't like raisins. However; I will definately make this again, it is a keeper. And next time I think I'll puree the sauce to hide the raisins (just like the packets you get with ham steaks) because of my picky kids! THANKS for posting.
