It wasn't just you, janedonut; I made this *3* times & got that same result. After the 3rd time, I put it back on the stove & melted it back down. I then added the other ingredients (though I used homemade cranberry sauce), & I found the flavor of the end result to be wonderful. I'll probably make this again, but I'll definitely remember that it's not as easy as this recipe makes it out to be!
Cranberry Jezebel Sauce with Sautéed Ham
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.
