Cranberry Jezebel Sauce with Sautéed Ham

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.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 ham slice and 1/2 cup sauce)


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/2 none medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup pineapple preserves
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 8 none (3-ounce) slices reduced-fat ham


Place sugar in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat; cook 2 minutes, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook 1 minute or until golden brown (do not stir). Remove from heat; gently stir in water and onion. Place in a medium bowl; cool completely. Stir in cranberry sauce, preserves, horseradish, and mustard. Cover and chill.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add 4 ham slices; cook 3 minutes on each side or until grill marks form. Repeat procedure with remaining ham slices. Serve with cranberry Jezebel sauce.
