    1. I used to work in D.C. by Union Station and have had Mumbo sauce a handful of times and from what I've had in the past it tasted just like this! Hope you enjoy!

  4. You didn't mention how much white vinegar for the mumbo sauce

    1. I sure didn't......sorry about that and thank you for pointing it out to me. It's 1 cup of white vinegar. Let me know how you like them! Thanks.
