    Andy Wold's Note:

    This is my mom's recipe. It is a wonderful homemade chili sauce that makes FANTASTIC sloppy joes (see Mel's Sloppy Joes , Mel's Sloppy Joes), or can be used for eggs rancheros(?).

      Very Good! I agree with other posters about letting it simmer longer. My sauce turned out a little thin but I still had the best sloppy joes ever. At first I couldn't put my finger on what made this sauce so good and unique. Then I figured it out. It was the ground cloves. That's was actually made the sauce for me.

      Just getting finished canning this recipe and the smell is great and intial tastes say its a winner. I used a 5 gallon pail of cherry tomatoes and just kind of tweeked the recipe. Doubled the spice list. Used 6 cups of white vinegar, 5 cups of brown sugar. Added 4 small cans of tomato paste and 20 cloves of minced fresh garlic. As others simmered 5 hours and finished it in the crockpot overnight on "keep warm" to get the thicker sauce. Made 1/2 hot with jalapeno peppers. I got 24 pints from it. I can tell, its going to be GOOD!
