This recipe is from Jean Anderson and her book "A Love Affair with Southern Cooking" literally bring tears to my eyes because she really loves Southern cooking and it shows through history, personal experiences, stories, etc. It's like reading a novel and so full of passion and love for cooking. According to her not many Southerners beyond northern Alabama know this sauce. It is used to marinate everything from chicken to fish. Also can be used as a dip for fresh veggies and in my case used as a dip for cracked crab and chilled cooked shrimp. Speak of delish! I had this sauce with Dungeness crab, coleslaw recipe from Dinosaur BBQ and gruner veltliner wine. Perfect.
