Pineapple-Raisin Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

The original of this recipe was meant to be served with glazed ham, but I've found the sauce to be a nice accompanyment for both pork & chicken! Four cups of fresh pineapple (diced medium) can be used instead of canned pineapple. If you want a somewhat less lumpy sauce, I'd suggest using crushed pineapple instead of the chunks.

Pineapple is the perfect compliment to ham and this is the way to bring it.
