Don't let the mixture fool you. This sweet, tangy sauce has been in my family since my great grandma Murphy first passed on the recipe. It is a wonderful addition to your classic St. Patrick's Day Dinner. Pour over meat, cabbage and potatoes!

I agree with the other reviewer in the fact there was too much ketchup. Other than that this was a good sauce. Read More

This sauce was great for our St. Patty's Day dinner. I didn't have any mint jelly so I substituted black cherry jam and it was wonderful and tangy! Read More
