If you're familiar with your Bible history, you may be familiar with a lady named "Jezebel". She was a character with a rather "hot and spicy" reputation! Whenever someone refers to someone being referred to as a "Jezebel", you can rest assured they're referring to them with a tempestuous attitude. This brings me to the recipe I'm sharing with you, which is for a sauce that is indeed "hot and spicy": "Jezebel Sauce".
This sauce is definitely hot and spicy, so if you like this type of food, you're bound to like this sauce. This is an interesting combination of ingredients that make this flavorful sauce. It's a surprising list of ingredients and the combination makes for a good sauce. It calls for pineapple preserves, along with apple jelly, dry mustard, horseradish and cracked pepper. Is it any wonder how it got it's name? Believe it or not, it's really very tasty!
All you do is combined the ingredients in a bowl and store in a covered jar in the refrigerator. That's all there is to it! Serve it with pork, poultry, or beef as a condiment. This would also be a good change of pace to put on a sandwich, hot dog or hamburger. Also, this would be great to serve with cooked beans. The sweet and hot flavors go well together to compliment whatever you're serving it with.
You see that the recipe calls for cracked pepper. This would be the type that you would grind in a pepper mill. Of course, you could use the type that comes prepared and packed in a tin, but the freshly ground makes a big difference. Also, the horseradish called for can be found in the refrigerated section of the grocery. The completed sauce keeps very well and whenever the food calls for something with some "bite" to it, reach into the refrigerator and enjoy it!
A few years ago, I shared another sauce recipe for "Tomato Relish", which would be great to make when the fresh tomatoes come out of the garden this summer. To get the recipe, follow this link:
Though this sauce is named for an unsavory woman, it's a very savory sauce, as you'll find out when you try it!
