Cooking Thursday

The recipe I'm sharing today is one I don't make often, as it's used as a sauce for ham. My mom got this from her sister when I was young and it was always part of our holiday dinners.
It still is - we had it with our ham on Easter.

2 tablespoons vinegar

Hi sweet friend! I haven't been by has been crazy busy and there's no end in sight since I'll be gone for a long weekend and then my grandchildren will be here next week. Life is good though so I'm not complaining!

Gosh, your sauce sounds so good. I'll definitely give this a try the next time I cook a ham.

My mom makes that when she has Ham dinners and I love it. I have never made it has I have never asked for the recipe. My sons did not like raisins, but now I can make it for hubs and me. Thanks

I didn't get to bake my Easter ham. It is still in the refrigerator. Maybe I will bake it tomorrow to celebrate the Royal wedding. This sauce would be good to try. Thanks you so much.
