1/4 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla

In same skillet, combine apples, raisins, brown sugar, water and cinnamon; stir gently to coat apples. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 6 to 7 minutes or just until apples are crisp-tender. Stir in vanilla.

Increase heat to medium-high. Move apple mixture to side of skillet. Add ham slices; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates, turning once.
