Aunt Masa's Soul Sauce

Marsha Gardner


The basic recipe came from some dear friends that lived in Niagara Falls, NY that had roots here in Alabama. I tinkered and tweaked the recipe and this is what has evolved.

Most kids from 3-93 will eat just about anything this barbecue sauce is on. I even had someone ask for it on their buttered noodles.
