Author Notes: A sweet, spicy, sassy sauce to serve over cream cheese or goat cheese with crackers; it's also delicious as a condiment with roasted pork or chicken or a glaze for ham. You can take it to the next level with homemade preserves, or buy pre-made ingredients.
This is a classic recipe and many versions can be found online; my family's recipe, a Christmas Eve staple for three decades, has an extra kick from a higher percentage of horseradish.

Serves: dozens!

  • 6 ounces pineapple preserves
  • 6 ounces apple jelly
  • 5 ounces prepared horseradish
  • 2 ounces yellow mustard (not powdered)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients and stir until the preserves melt and the mixture is completely blended.
  2. Cool to room temperature before storing in a tightly-sealed jar or container in the refrigerator.
  3. Jezebel sauce keeps for at least 2 months; ingredients may be doubled.
