This recipe is my own sauce I devised, trying to use up my garden veggies in the fall Before "Jack Frost" toke over.
Fall was the time for canning, freezing and putting away for a rainy day! Nothing like having your own home grown food.We had a farm in the 50's, row cropping soy beans and field corn in Indiana.I only won 2nd prize at the county fair for this recipe and I have had many requests for this recipe. I just threw what I had or wanted into the pot.
Eventually I had to write out a recipe, for friends and family!
This is it, I made it again yesterday. Please enjoy.
