I am a label reader of packaged food, clothes, appliances and so forth, I also try and buy things made in the USA, local, and organic when possible. One thing I enjoy on my hot dogs, and hamburgers is chili sauce. Since I am a label reader I did not like the ingredients I was reading on the back of chili sauce cans and would by-pass them.
This is a well known brand, but most other brands had basically the same ingredients, I try and not buy anything with MSG in it, so not healthy for us to consume.
I went in search for a recipe to make my own, found many, tweaked one to my taste, using all natural/organic ingredients. I wanted one I could preserve in canning! It must have been delicious as family were calling for more, so I made two batches.
This was my first batch,simple ingredients: ground beef, water, onions, garlic, tomatoes/tomato paste, brown sugar, lemon juice, vinegar, cumin, chili pepper, salt and pepper, process in pressure canner!
Btw, I had cleaned and put my pressure canner away for a while, but this certainly brought it back out again. The canner is cleaned now and put away, but stay tuned anything could cause me to bring it back.~wink~
I always love Mondays, it seems I get a chance to try and get it right, my lack of staying in touch hasn't been intentional for sure, it has been a very busy summer with some uninvited circumstances,one thing for sure.:
The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet as deer's feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakkuk 3;19
The Faithfulness of God in all circumstances brings me to more Thankfulness for His unfailing love!
I think of you all so often, and really miss you!
