Traditionally we would have ham on Easter, however, my husband loves it so much it will be served Christmas Eve. Mom made this sauce and no one could figure out why it was so good....I just found the recipe in her recipe box she left us!!! RIP
BE SURE NOT TO COOK TOO LONG, IF TOO THICK TO SPREAD ADD MORE SWEET LIQUID.
