Bourbon and cranberries sauce

Made by Helen

Found this picture again and I decided to post it. You can use this sauce to accompanied your ham. These past few years I had not make ham, as my sister had taken over and so too turkey by my brother-in-law. He had weber BBQ set.

At least I don’t have to stress getting all these ingredients and cooking them. I can concern only making dessert. Well, I needed a good rest. But still needed to make sauces. I am glad to make them. Here’s the sauce that goes well with ham, turkey and roast pork. Let’s get the sauce ready!!!


100 g whole cranberry sauce in a jar
1/2 lemon, juiced
3 garlic cloves, minced
60ml maple syrup
60ml white vinegar

2 Tsp hot paprika
2 Tsp sweet paprika
2 Tsp cumin
2 Tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbs olive oil
