Isn't it interesting that Michigans are not known by that name in Mighican? I believe they are only known as Michigans in northern New York (my hometown).

Very good Michigan sauce. I'm from Burlington, Vermont and it is called "Michigan" sauce there too. If you are ever in Burlington, go to Battery Park and get a Michigan Hot Dog from "Beansies Bus", it is a city landmark and have been their many generations.
