A recipe from the farm in Ford River. They would take this and sell at a Farmer's Market, along with maple syrup, flowers, and all the best produce grown. It is a 1940's recipe.


  1. Grind the tomatoes, peppers, and onion in a meat grinder.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a large canning pot.
  3. Bring to a boil and boil 20 minutes.
  4. Put in 8-1/2 pint jars and seal.

Unfortunately, this recipe had very little flavor for me. I did take the suggestion to add some sugar/cinnamon/cloves and that made it better. I also then added some cayenne to give it some punch.EDIT: 1/19/08 I opened a jar of this today and had on crackers. I must say the original flavors have increased--it's much more flavorful now--I'd now give it 4 stars.

This is a delicious recipe! I love that I can use it as is, as a salsa or savory chili sauce, or add some sugar and cinnamon and cloves and make a sweet chili sauce! Very good flavors. I used medium tomatoes, 1 green pepper, but only had about 1/2 of a red pepper. I used medium red onions and got about 3 1/2 pints. Thank you so much for posting Rose!
