Sauce for Baked Ham

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Milk and Cookies

I got this recipe from a friend while I was in university, her husband won't eat ham without it. It is a great alternative to plain mustard. My husband and I love it also though I must admit I often forget to make it.

Made this for a baked ham on mother's day. it didn't work out as well as I'd hoped. Made it as written and found it to be both too sweet and to sour. To help make it more palatable I added a tsp more ground mustard and about 2 tsp black pepper. The extra spice did help balance the sweet and sour. I would make it again by special request with the extra changes.
