Jezebel Sauce

Jezebel sauce is one of those perfect party foods, I actually discovered this recipe at a party years ago. I finally got around to making Jezebel sauce, this is one of those sauces that when poured over cream cheese, you have a dish that is ready for a party. What makes this Southern dish special is you can make this spicy and sweet sauce ahead of time, when you make this you will have plenty to put in a pretty jar and bring some to a party.

  • 15 ounces pineapple preserves
  • 15 ounces apple jelly
  • 3 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup prepared horseradish


  • In a medium sized bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. This will store well for several weeks. When ready to serve pour over cream cheese, and serve with crackers. There are other great uses for this Jezebel sauce recipe, Rachel Ray uses this type of sauce as a glaze for ham. This sauce would be great to dip chicken nuggets into or even try this sauce instead of sweet and sour sauce with egg rolls. Do you have any party favorites that you can't be without? I love to serve dishes like this, easy to prepare and it isn't something you can buy in the store, but yet, this only takes a couple of minutes to prepare.

    Stephanie, I want to make this sauce for our church bazaar. I just don’t think “Jezebel” would go over very well. Could you suggest a different name for this sauce? I thank you for a response and your thoughts.

    • Stephanie

      You can name is anything you like. You can name it special kicked up sauce, or my Aunt Sally’s sauce 😉 It’s really good, you know I think I am going to make a batch of it soon!

    I’m making Jezebel sauce for wedding favors. We will be making them a month in advance. Do we need to can them? Or can we just put them in the mason jars without canning them?

    • Stephanie

      I think that may be a little bit on the edge of how long this sauce would be good for. Do you think everyone will eat up the sauce immediately? It may be fine.
      What a cool wedding favor idea!

    Usually with Smucker’s other ice cream toppings. I use the recipe w/o cream cheese for a dipping sauce for chicken tenders

    My aunt would make this for Christmas, but hers was red. She used apple jelly and cinnamon. The kick came from chili peppers. I am excited to try your recipe it looks good.

    I love Jezabel sauce! I have my uncles recipe that I’ve been wanting to put on the blog but I can’t find pineapple preserves here anywhere! For some reason I’ve been reluctant to order it online, who knows why. I’m glad to see it here, you always do a nice job with everything.

    You know I found the preserves at the grocery store, I used Smuckers brand. I hope that helps. ~Stephanie
