Author Notes

This Southern-style condiment is an impertinent hussy of a sauce which contrasts silky sweetness with a lot of bite. Traditionally served with cream cheese on crackers, it can be used in a number of ways. It is great on a hamburger. It makes a zesty glaze for grilled meats. It is perfect with fried foods. It complements sweet potatoes and winter squash. I sometimes wonder whether it would work as an ice cream topping??!!? —friendlyoaks
