Mama Dee's Tartar Sauce

Dee Stillwell


I have experimented alot making tartar sauce and prefer homemade to store bought. That is always so oily tasting. This is the way I make mine and we all love it. I make this when I make fish tacos or fish & chips. Enjoy! Not my pic. I will post one next time I make this.
