Grandma Strohecker's Cider and Raisin Sauce

Total Time

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Grandma Strohecker. As with so many of these recipes, she didn't specify serving yield. So, I am guessing a bit. I have had a version of this so many times growing up and it is *so* good.

Directions

  1. Mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt.
  2. Add the cider and the raisins.
  3. Tie spices in a piece of cheesecloth.
  4. Add spice bundle and boil mixture for about 10 minutes. Remove the spice bundle.
  5. Serve the sauce hot with ham.

As soon as I saw this recipe I knew how I was gonna christen it ~ Over an open-face ham sandwich made with a thick slice of whole-grain bread! Love raisins, anyway, no matter how they're used, & this sauce is just simply GREAT! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe, which, obviously is a great keeper!
