The raisins cook up plump and soft in this savory golden sauce that will dress up ham for Easter dinner or anytime. A tart hint of lemon balances the fruit's sweetness. You can mix up this delicious accompaniment in minutes. —Lavonne Hartel Williston, North Dakota

"Delicious recipe! Mine came out brown, like gravy, perhaps because I had dark brown sugar? Very easy to make."
