Personal Notes:
Note from mom is that it is far better than store bought and cheaper. If you do not plan on eating all the sauce within two days, put the mixture on the stove to simmer. After it is hot, let simmer for three to five minutes before pouring into jars. Refrigerate after cool. Mixture will keep for 10 to 14 days.
