Floss McCarty’s Raisin Sauce

Every year at Easter, my Mom would make roast ham (gammon) with mashed potatoes and some sort of green vegetable. It sounds a bit dull, but it really wasn’t. Especially when the smoky roasty taste of the ham was enhanced by Mom’s special raisin sauce. And since I met ThermoHubby John and was welcomed into his family, my dear sister-in-law Trina now makes my Mom’s raisin sauce to go with the Christmas gammon joint. Delicious! And so very kind of Trina to include something of my family’s traditions in our new extended family tradition. Thanks, Trina!

There’s still a week to go until Christmas so I haven’t made or photographed Mom’s raisin sauce yet. This photo is from a lovely blog called The Housewife Modern by Jennie Landsberger. Her recipe has more ingredients and sounds quite delicious. Click on the photo and check it out!

Serves 8
A somewhat sweet way to jazz up a joint of gammon or a roast ham. Gives texture and spice. Try it according to this recipe and then turn the leftovers into a pseudo chutney by adding your favourite curry spices. Bon appétit !
