The History: One bite of this popular Southern sauce, and you’re back in the basement at your church potluck, enjoying Sister Betty’s ham glazed with that unforgettable sweet and spicy potion. She was probably too polite to call it by its real name: Jezebel Sauce.
The Old Testament tells of the legend of Queen Jezebel, who is mean as a snake and matriarch to all. Apparently, Tennessee thought this captured the powerfully delicious elixir made with fruit preserves, horseradish, and those south of the Mason-Dixon line spices that will remind you of the Promise Land. While others might try to claim this beloved seasoning, Jezebel Sauce reigns sovereign in the rolling hills of Tennessee, where they never have any trouble getting Volunteers to savor this sauce!
Recommended for: Those who need to add some heat and sweetness to their grub. Amazing for white meats and salmon.
