Best cocktail sauce I have had. I will never buy it in the jar again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We adore this cocktail sauce. Used extra horseradish so only used half the amount called for. Delish! Thanks Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
very good recipe, except for the chili sauce. i recommend the best chili sauce, bennetts, instead of the homogenous, bland and none-too-good heinz. home canned chili sauce is better yet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
