Have you ever heard of Comeback Sauce? It seems that every mention of it I come across in a cooking magazine heralds it as "The Sauce of the South," yet I had yet to try it once.
I hadn't seen it on a menu, or had it served to me by a friend.
Have I just been frequenting the wrong places? I know it's supposedly more popular in Mississippi than Tennessee, but I don't remember seeing it during my 4+ years there, either. Catfish, yes...lots of catfish. :-)
I dunno. Whatever the reason for this sauce staying under my culinary radar, after seeing it mentioned yet again- this time in Southern Living magazine- I knew I had to finally break down and try it for myself.
