I got this recipe more than 40 years ago from my mother-in-law. The flavor is unique and everyone to whom I've ever served it asks for the recipe. It's simple to put together and takes very little time. Just don't leave out the "unusual" ingredient or it won't be the "Best Spaghetti Sauce You'll Ever Eat."

Since the last time I made this sauce I developed Muscular Dystrophy and can no longer cook, so I don't have a picture.
