CSW's Chili Sauce
I love this with bacon & eggs, omelets or even ham OR hamburgers.
Have even mixed some into my hamburger when making meatloaf!
I also love the smell it tosses through-out the house when I'm simmering/preparing it for canning.

How to Make CSW's Chili Sauce
- Add "spicebag" to ingredients; bring to a boil & cook uncovered over moderate heat for 2 to 2 & 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.
This mixture should get fairly thick as it cooks down.
Remove the spice bag; ladle into sterilized sealers and seal immediately.
(I have never done the boiling water bath with this recipe & have never had any problems with the sauce spoiling. My recipe was made up 48 years ago before anyone did the "bath" method....lolol)
