My dad loves to grow a hugh garden and then do a lot of canning in his canning kitchen..he makes his own recipes. I have heard the resort name, 'The Greenbriar', all my life..it is a very elegant, romantic, and Victorian style resort located in White Sulphur Springs, WVA. The Greenbriar has the most delicious homemade Spaghetti Sauce, and my dad knows how to make it..he loves it so much that he cans tons of it for every year. This is one of his most favorite canned goods..he makes plenty of it yearly!
