Cranberry Jezebel Sauce with Sautéed Ham

Cooking Light
This classic Southern sauce combines the fruitiness of cranberry sauce and pineapple preserves with the tanginess of horseradish and mustard. It is a piquant partner for ham. When you add the water and onion, don't lean over the pan because it can splatter.
8 servings (serving size: 1 ham slice and 1/2 cup sauce)
