Traditionally we would have ham on Easter, however, my husband loves it so much it will be served on 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.

The brown sugar, cinnamon, and mustard are a great combination of flavors in this great raisin sauce. Your family and guests will love it on your holiday ham!
