Raisin Sauce for Ham.

Dad taught me to make this sauce by putting me in front of a cook book.

Serve with Baked Ham
I finally found the original recipe in two different cook books.

1 cup Brown Sugar Packed
1/2 cup Water.
1 cup Raisins.
2 Tablespoons Butter or Ham Fat or Bacon Grease.
1/4 teaspoon Cloves
1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 cup Current [Jelly Good luck finding this]
1/4 cup White Vinegar.
1/4 cup Ham drippings.
1.5 teaspoons Worchestershire Sause

Add Water and Sugar in Sauce Pan and heat until sugar is dissolved.
Add all other ingredients.
Cook slowly until raisins are plump, [about 20 minutes].

One Sunday Dad was cooking a Ham and I asked him if we could have Raisin Sauce. He opened a cookbook to the page with the Raisin Sauce recipe and told me to ask if I needed help.

The Good Housekeeping Cook Book, 7th edition, 1942, Rinehart. Page 606.
Fanny Farmer Cookbook page 606


Both these books use the exact same recipe except for the amount of pepper.
I added the Ham Drippings.
