Spaghetti Sauce -Make a Big Pot

deb baldwin


So now I am in Canada, recruited to be a camp cook. The shopping trip, to town and get supplies, was quite an ordeal..mud bogging. Our truck was the only one that would make it out if it rained.
The store had limited supplies and most of the stuff I never even heard of.. Garbanzo beans per can was quite expensive. Over the required budget. Never had Mrs. Butterworth's syrup. Nothing maple unless it was the real thing. I can't afford that either. No packaged seasoning mixes (like Schillings) spaghetti sauce or anything like it in a jar.
So.....I made my own.
They did have a sort of bakery and I struck it rich when I found bread loafs "unsliced". Jackpot! Looked like homemade and all I had to do was slice it. Used this bread when I ran out of my homemade bread.
I also got hooked on Canadian food items that are not available in the U. S.
Red River Cereal for the best wheat bread, Tender Flake perfect pastry for pie dough, A peach drink mix (kind of like cool aid)and a custard powder for deserts.
