Jezebel Sauce

March 16, 2015

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.
