This flavorful, easy to make sauce has long been a favorite at Southern cocktail parties dating back to the 1950’s.  As an appetizer or snack before dinner, I serve it with cream cheese spread and crackers.  It’s always fun when guests ask “what is this?” and I share the name!
A Southern Soul | Jezebel Sauce

There’s always grins, a smirk and a comment or two that it’s named Jezebel – since it’s sweet, spicy with a dose of heat that tends to remind one of that infamous woman from the book of Kings.  Over the past couple of years I’ve found a few new ways to serve up Jezebel sauce and oh my goodness, y’all have got to give it a try on burgers, as a glaze for ham or as a little something on the side with chicken or beef.  It’s always fun when something old becomes new again.
