Nana's Chili Sauce


Makes me smile to add this recipe. It conjures up a real memory for me. My grandmother lived with us . . . and this was a signature recipe of hers. And nothing smells as good on a stove as this recipe simmering. Don't let the name fool you . . . it's more of a relish. And it's fabulous on chicken or fish . . . anything. It's worth the chopping for the smell alone.

6 14.5 oz. cans tomatoes
3 large green peppers, chopped
6 large onions, chopped
2 cups vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 T. salt
1 t. cloves
1 t. allspice
1/2 t. cinnamon
red pepper to taste
Cook till soft

This is as specific as it gets, which is funny to me. Live a little. Give it a try.
