Raisin, Honey Mustard Sauce for Ham

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

This is a lovely sauce for your Easter ham. A bit sweet/sour in the flavor. I often plump the raisins in 4 tbsp of rum overnight before adding them to the sauce.

I upped the honey to 4 Tablespoons and poured the whole thing over some ham steaks and baked them. They turned out amazing. Moist and flavorful.

This is a lovely sauce for ham, really enhances the flavor! I used the rum to soak the raisins. My DH thought the sauce needed to be hot, so he put his in the microwave for 30 seconds, and prounounced it "awesome". Thanks for a great sauce, Bergy! :o)
