Jezebel Sauce with Baked Ham

Every now and then I have a taste for a nice spiral cut ham. I have found that the Cook's brand is very good and usually economical. You get a couple of meals, sandwiches and the chance to make split pea soup! When I make ham for dinner, I make it with a couple of favorite sides.

One is Jezebel Sauce. Pass this to serve over sliced ham. It has a nice tangy, sweet flavor. Rachael Ray has this in one of her cookbooks as well.

This is also delicious served over goat cheese rounds for your party table. I love the creaminess of goat cheese and this sauce pairs well with it.
Jezebel Sauce
1 c. apricot preserves
1 c. pineapple preserves
1/4 c. horseradish, drained
3 tbsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. pepper

Mix preserves, horseradish, mustard, and pepper.
Store covered in the refrigerator.
To serve as an appetizer:

1 or 2 pkgs. goat cheese

To serve, slice goat cheese in rounds and place on a small platter.
Spoon jezebel sauce over the top.
Serve with water crackers for a nice crunch that will not compete with the flavors of the sauce.


  1. I love the name Jezebel sauce. I am going to share this with my friend and my MIL! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. The sauce sounds great. I love ham like you do..cuz it makes so many great "other" meals.
    guess what? I got my prize in the mail yesterday. Thank you so much. It goes with my kitchen, which is yellow (and red), so that is fun too. I have found blogging to be fun and rewarding too. And not just rewarding to have won your prize--LOL, but rewarding in getting to know people who enjoy the same things I do.
    Thank you again... and look for a picture on my blog in the next couple of days.
    Thanks again.

  3. Oh Yeah, the sauce sounds yummy....sweet with a bit of kick from the horseradish! CHEERS! Michele

  4. This sounds yummy! I have a ham in the freezer...some weekend soon I'll be baking it! Then we can have the ham sandwiches, boiled dinner or baked potatoes w/ ham...split pea soup...yummm.

  5. Thanks for sharing this - I'll definitely give this sauce a try - we have company coming so this would be a great idea
