Dueling Jezebels

Yield Makes 4 cups
Southerners are, by nature, opinionated about their food, which is why you'll find so many variations of popular recipes like Jezebel Sauce in community cookbooks. The origins of this pineapple-and-horseradish-spiked party favorite are linked to the Gulf Coast, and its name to Queen Jezebel, the biblical bad girl who inspired the eponymous 1938 film starring Bette Davis as a bold and saucy Southern belle.From Savory & Sage by the Tallahassee Garden Club.
