1/4 cup raisins

3 Tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon unsalted butter

4 teaspoons country-style Dijon mustard

1 pound ham steak

+ in a small saucepan, combine the apple cider, sherry, raisins, and one 1 Tablespoon of the maple syrup. Bring to a boil over a medium-high heat. Boil 11-12 minutes, until reduced to 1/2 cup. Remove from the heat and swirl in the butter. Keep warm.

+ in a small bowl, combine the remaining 2 Tablespoons maple syrup and the mustard. Place the ham steak on the broiler pan; broil 4 inches from the heat, turning once, 8 minutes. Brush with mustard mixture and broil until lightly browned, 3-4 inches longer.
