Muscadine Dipping Sauce

Muscadine jelly is one of the South’s greatest treasures. If you can’t find it in your local market, you live too far north.


1 /4 cup white vinegar

1 cup muscadine jelly

1 /4 cup Creole mustard

1 /4 cup horseradish

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp salt


In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt jelly with vinegar and stir until smooth.

Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.

Yield: 2 cups
