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.
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cider
- 1⁄4 cup seedless raisin
- 4 cinnamon sticks, small pieces
- 8 whole cloves
- Mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt.
- Add the cider and the raisins.
- Tie spices in a piece of cheesecloth.
- Add spice bundle and boil mixture for about 10 minutes. Remove the spice bundle.
- 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!
