Personal Notes:
Although much debate occurred on the exact amounts of the ingredients, the above should provide a pretty close to perfect sauce for you. Aunt Jo actually used 2.5 times the water as the paste and puree. When using hot sausage you may want to decrease the amount of crushed pepper you put in.
