Raisin sauce

Sunday, March 28, 2010

This is an excellent sauce for ham. It is thin just so you know that's how it's supposed to be :)

What you'll need:
  • 10 ounce jar red currant jelly
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted and heated through. Makes about 2 cups sauce.

Cost:
jelly - $1.49 
raisins - $1.58
butter - $2.38
lemons - $1.99/4
Total - $2.92

2 of my favorite chefs had this to say....:

My mother used to make something similar to this with our Easter ham. Thanks for the recipe and the memory.

Have you ever tried it on roasted pork loin? Sounds like a good combo.
