Cranberry Mustard Sauce...

Cranberry Mustard Sauce

Thanksgiving and Christmas are quickly coming. You like me, may be short of time and need some great and easy recipes to fall back on. I love the simplicity of ham. So simple, you just put it in a roasting dish and put it in the oven. And salty ham gravy, does it get any better? No it really does not, although the salt will not be good for you, it is so hard to resist! This simple sauce is an alternative to gravy. Adding mustard to the Cranberry sauce makes it taste entirely different. This is a recipe much like the one sold by Hickory farms for years in their shops. It would be great as a dip for other meat and sausage, as well as ham. 

The ingredients are few, whole grain mustard, brown sugar, and jellied cranberry...

add to a saucepan:
1  15 ounce can jellied cranberry
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of whole grain spicy mustard
1/4 cup of water

heat over medium to low heat...stirring often....until the cranberry is all melted...

and that is it! 

simply put, the best and quickest sauce ever!!!

Cheers to Happy  !!

  1. Oh, yum! This one looks good, too.

    I made the meatloaf in my muffin pans yesterday. Kids loved them but what a mess! LOL!

    I did not do the mashed potato on top. Maybe next time.
