A week and a half ago my Grandmother past away, she was 91, the mother of 7 children, grandmother of 9 and great grandmother of 4. While we will miss her greatly she lived a long life and was loved by many.
She loved babies and children, nothing made her happier. Although she would regularly tell me how she thought it was amazing that I had 4 children and how did I do it? Which is of course ironic considering she had 7 children! I’ve thought a lot about what it must be like to cook for that size of a family on a regular basis.
A couple of years ago when I started writing Homemade Cravings I asked her about it and she decided to empty out her recipe box and send me all the recipes. One that stuck out was the Chili Sauce, something my mom remembered simmering all day on the stove when she was a kid.
My mom and I decided to spend a day making chili sauce and canning tomatoes a couple of years ago and I wrote a post about it. When taking a look at the stats for my site this week I saw that I was getting a lot of people visiting after searching for Chili Sauce and thought, what a great way to pay tribute to Grandma but repost her Chili Sauce recipe.
Hey Mom – want to make some Chili Sauce?
