My Nana was PA Dutch, she was born in the late 1800's!
She always had a jar of this in the fridge.
It keeps indefinitely without spoiling.
It's great warmed and served over a lettuce salad with grated hard boiled eggs sprinkled over.
I also like a little spooned over cooked, drained green beans. Not all my family likes this :)
It's sweet/sour so use your imagination.
