Mumbo Sauce

Mumbo Sauce

A friend of mine asked me lately if I’d e’er heard of mumbo sauce, since she had simply returned from Washington D.C., together with said it was “everywhere.” I hadn’t, which isn’t a surprise, since unless you’re from the Capital, or select neighborhoods inwards Chicago, this materials is virtually unknown.

Apparently, this sweet-and-sour condiment came to Washington D.C. via Chicago, where it somehow became a staple inwards Chinese take-out restaurants, served every bit a condiment with fried chicken wings, with other things. That’s every bit much background every bit you’re getting here, together with similar many other regional culinary specialties, the history is murky.

All I know is that this was neat with fried chicken wings, together with I await frontwards to finding other uses for it, although I’m non certain French fries is going to hold upwards ane of them. I’m a ketchup guy, together with in all probability also sometime to change. Having said that, I tin run into this catching on, together with for once, I’ll hold upwards ahead of a trend.

They nation every takeout house inwards D.C. has their ain hugger-mugger recipe, but at that spot were quite a few published recipes on the Internet, together with and thus this is form of a composite, based on the extensive, twenty minutes of query I did. Stay tuned for the chicken fly experiment I mentioned inwards the video, together with inwards anticipation, I actually create promise yous plough over this a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
