Author Notes: Jezebel sauce is one of those Southern recipes whose origins are lost in time, but if you have it in your refrigerator, you have the makings of either a great sauce for pork and chicken, or the base of a great, quick party snack. You can use whatever combination of soft cheeses strikes your fancy, and my "dipper" of choice with this dish is Wheat Thins crackers. - Kayb
