Raisin Sauce

Makes 2 1/4 cups; 8 to 10 servings

This simple, old-fashioned spiced raisin sauce has been a longstanding holiday tradition for Margery Davis Bennett's husband. His family enjoys it with cooked turkey or ham.

 1 cup sugar
 1 cup raisins
 2/3 cup apple jelly
 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
 1 tablespoon lemon juice
 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
 1/4 teaspoon mace
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Step 1

In a 2- to 3-quart pan over medium heat, stir sugar and 1/2 cup water until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add raisins, jelly, vinegar, butter, lemon juice, cloves, mace, salt, and pepper; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until raisin sauce is reduced to 2 1/4 cups, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
