How To Make ham with cherry sauce

  • 1
    Mix cherry filling and golden raisins together in a sauce pan. Heat the jelly, mustard, pineapple juice and white wine together in a sauce pan, and use this sauce to baste your ham. (I use a spiral ham.)
  • 2
    After ham is thoroughly heat through, remove from oven and pour drippings into the cherry/raisin mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly and then place on low heat and stir until thickened. (If sauce isn't thick enough, put a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch mixed thoroughly with water slowly into cherry/raisin mixture, and heat and stir a bit more.)
