"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from my sister-in-law's mom (Patsy), who not only worked for me a long time ago, but is the person who introduced me to Tory.

I don't care for meatballs, but mom & I LOVE these! Patsy cans the sauce about twice a year and uses it on porkchops, chicken and the meatballs. I think this recipe makes about 20-25 jars. A lot of times I make these ahead of time and freeze them. Then it is really easy to make them at the cabin or take to friends.
