Mississippi's Come-Back Sauce
There's one thing I know about the state of Mississippi...It's a great state for Sunday driver's any day of the week. You're always going to see beautiful old trees and water in the form of ponds or lakes wherever you drive. I believe the historians when they say that a squirrel used to go across the whole state and never hit ground because of the abundance of trees here. The state of Mississippi loves trees so much, it has the largest collection of tree farms in the USA. There is a large variety of wildlife here also.
During the days before refrigeration as we know it arrived, and even after, for those who couldn't afford it, hunting and catching wild game and fish was a normal thing. This tradition goes as far back as the first wars and racial bondage, when people needed more protein than they were allocated so they could do all that physical labor required of them from sun up to sundown. This was required so they could survive the oppressive businessmen(slave owners) of their time.
I really used to enjoy playing near and in the creeks of my little town, Terry. That's where I got my first biology lessons. Those ponds were my first swimming pools. The white sands on the creeks were my first beaches.
I used to spend time in the woods. I was always suspicious that I was being watched by something. The trees were so old and huge that they would hide the sun like a gigantic umbrella. I always wanted to do that, watch things and never be seen. That was the closest I would come to being invisible. I enjoyed drinking water from an underground spring. That's when I realized that real water is supposed to have a taste and be so cold that it made it's own ice.
I remember how my grandmother would take that water, use fresh lemons, slicing them and putting them in a bowl. She would add some sugar, take a potato masher and mash then until all the juices were let out and add that cold spring water. Man, I haven't had any lemonade like that since.
That's why after traveling all over the USA, I always end up coming back to Mississippi. If you've ever really experienced it's charm and graciousness among all the negative rumors, you too would come back. There was someone in the 1930s who knew about coming back and they made a sauce with just that name. It used to be in all the eateries just like ketchup is today, but now there are only a few classic establishments that know of this sauce and still use it today. Let me share the recipe with you. It can be used as a dipping sauce or a salad dressing. Just leave it on the table and see how long it lasts.
