Hi there– Just pulled the last of the Easter ham leftovers out of the freezer. The thing about leftovers is that they don’t seem so sad if you give them a little extra trimmings to make them seem not-so-leftover. Do you know what I mean?
So to wake up this dish, we splashed on a little raspberry orange sauce. It was just fine. —And the leftovers of the sauce can be used on ice cream or pancakes or in a smoothie… Leftovers galore– I’m just glad to have them!
RASPBERRY ORANGE HAM SAUCE
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1/2 cup honey
1 tab. butter
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 cup fresh (or frozen) raspberries
Mix the orange juice, raspberry jam, butter and honey in a sauce pan. Bring it to a boil on the burner and then turn down to let it simmer for 15 minutes. Then in a container with a tight fitting lid, shake together the cornstarch and water until they are all blended. Stir this into the simmer sauce and stir until it thickens, just a couple minutes.
Pour in the raspberries and let it sit to warm them. Serve it warm over your cooked ham.
