    I miss the real jan sauce from the candle light in sterling Illinois. This is a great recipe but nothing like the candle lights!

      I was told by my relatives after eating at the Candlelight in Sterling, that it was mayo, hot sauce, and powdered sugar. IDK – worth a shot maybe.

    This was really good I made a mild batch for me and a hotter batch for my husband.
    We really enjoyed it on our chicken tenders.
