This simple pineapple sauce is so delicious and easy to make. I got the recipe from my Sister-in-law. Leftovers are great served warm, over vanilla ice cream. I love it with a Honey Baked Ham.

I thought it was great and so easy. I made it on the spur of the moment and had everything in the house, including the pineapple in the freezer! I love raisins, and somehow think that raisins go with ham, so I threw in a handful while it was simmering. A winner!

We make this every year for our staff Christmas party at Place of Rescue Orphanage in Cambodia. This year we will use palm sugar and limes from my own garden. Yummm!
