My Mom made this sauce for years and even now as I type it here to share with you, I can "smell" it simmering."Powerfull" memories!...lolol

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.
