Wow........this is so easy to make and the flavor is wonderful (although I did have to add some salt to mine). I added some to my spaghetti sauce and my man said it was the best spaghetti he had ever eaten. I can see using this in a lot of different recipes, chili, sloppy joes even casseroles. This makes quite a lot (6 pints for me) so plan on canning or freezing some to use for later. Thanks for a great keeper Cliff.
