" Homemade Tartar Sauce is so much better than bought. It keeps well in the fridge but remember it has raw egg yolks in it. It's flavour increases if you keep it in the fridge for an hour or so before serving. This makes just about 1 cup of sauce."

This has been my go to tartar sauce for several years now. It is the best homemade I have found. For full flavour, make a few hours ahead of time. Thank you Bergy for sharing!
