The Quest for a Garlic Sauce : The Story Behind "Mama Milly's"
The need for a non-ketchupy, garlicky, flavorful sauce to spoon over was real in my household. The need for a sauce to spoon over tostones (fried plantain) was a priority in our household. Ketchup wasn't it ... It needed to be flavorful ... garlicky ... And nothing on the market really hit the spot!
So my mother, Milly, made this creation many, many years ago. In a traditional Puerto Rican pilón (wooden mortar and pestle), she crushed fresh garlic and spices into a flavorful paste and combined it with oil.
This sauce quickly became a staple in our meals and a frequently requested condiment by family and guests. While mojo means "wet" in Spanish, this sauce holds major magical powers as it has been our secret to making tasty food.
Use it as a base for sauteeing or roasting your favorite proteins or vegetables. Use it as a marinade. Use it as a condiment. And of course, it's perfect with tostones.

What our Customers are saying ...
The Garlic Mojo Sauce is just incredible! I find myself looking for an excuse to add it to every meal. I purchased many jars to give as gifts over this past holiday season- and my friends have loved it too.
This is my go-to sauce for making a simple and delicious meal. Put it on bread and toast it for a fantastic garlic bread!
Excellent! Planning to buy for friends too. It’s particularly great and easy to use in these times when my meals are truly stuck in a rut and a daily chore.
