It was snowy & icy in upstate NY. We had gotten in from the grocery store, put things away & realized we forgot Cocktail Sauce for the shrimp! I popped open "The Old Settlement Cookbook", circa. 1943, and found this one. I like it because it calls for things usually on hand.


  1. Mix all together, add a few dashes of hot sauce, as desired to taste.
  2. Chill in refrigerator.
  3. Serve with cold cooked shrimp hung over edges in individual cocktail glasses with sauce inside, spooned over a small amt. of fresh lettuce leaves as an appetizer.
