Hazel’s Amazing Sauces
Hazel was born in 1897. When she was a child, her family made amazing sauces that
were always a hit at the local fairs and annual pig roasts. When Hazel was a child, she
helped her family make Chili Sauce and sold it to help make ends meet during the
Great Depression. Hazel’s family’s sauces were a labor of love. There was no
microwave, no food processor, and no grocery store to pop in to pick up a missing
ingredient. Everything in the sauce was homegrown in an organic vegetable garden
and homemade on a wood stove.
The recipes have been passed on from generation to generation and my mom, Hazel’s
daughter, made the sauces every once in a while for special occasions. After my
mother passed in 2011, we feared the recipes passed with her. Fortunately, some four
years later when I was clearing out some boxes of my mother’s keepsakes, I found the
chili sauce recipe–and some others! I am proud to introduce you to our first sauce,
Hazel’s Chili Sauce, made with the same labor of love as my family has for
Hazel’s Chili Sauce is great as a base and a condiment. It’s fantastic on scrambled
eggs, pulled pork, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, on tortilla chips, as a soup base, as
a chili base, or mixed with barbeque sauce!
