Chop some apples and onions into one inched sized chunks and sauté in butter. Allow the vegetables to retain some crunch, and add the desired amount of raisins, three tablespoons of honey or brown sugar, two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, and a little chicken broth or water. Stir and cook till apples and onions are tender and the sauce is very thick.

Open two or more cans of crushed, unsweetened pineapple with juice. Add the juice to a pan and heat to medium heat. Once the pineapple juice is slightly bubbly, add one to two teaspoons of cornstarch or arrowroot powder and whisk until thick. Add one to tablespoons of lemon juice, honey to taste, crushed pineapple, and a dash of vanilla. Cook a few more minutes and serve warm or cold over ham.

For a mustard sauce with smoothness and bite, whisk together yogurt, mustard to taste, honey, and a dash of lemon juice. Other ingredients added to the mustard sauce, like finely chopped onion or sautéed red bell pepper are also delicious. A yogurt mint sauce is incredibly easy to make, just mix up yogurt, chopped, fresh mint leaves, a dash of honey, a little lemon juice, and a pinch of black pepper. Sour cream can be added for extra richness.
