BESIDES being a great cook, my mom could put a meal together in no time at all. A creative cook, she didn't always measure everything, which made it look so easy.
This recipe of hers is quick to put together. The sauce is simple but delicious. We have ham quite often and this is our favorite "leftover" dish.

Cranberries, apple and a little brown sugar blend into a chunky accompaniment to ham. The not-too-sweet sauce gets its pretty pink color from cranberry juice. When cranberries are in season, I freeze some specifically for this down-home dinner.

“I took a class at a local junior college on cooking for singles,” shares Eloise Smith from Willowbrook, Illinois. “This recipe is the perfect size, and I can reheat the second serving for lunch the next day.”
"My husband loves ham, but I get bored cooking it the same old way," says Karla Foisy from Minneapolis, Minnesota. "I wanted something easy and tasty, so I came up with this zippy sauce that really perks up a plain ham steak."
A simply spiced marinade gives mild sweet flavor to these tender grilled ham slices. "It's very good served with scrambled eggs for brunch," recommends Rita Deere of Evansville, Indiana. "We round out the meal with melon balls and buttered toast."
