So. . . . . .
I started thinking about making homemade chili sauce, and glanced at the label on a bottle of a store brand chili sauce, and thought, wow, that's just too simple! Believe me, I want simple! Word for word, almost..."Tomato puree (tomato paste, water, corn syrup, vinegar, salt, dried onions, spice". . .no right side parentheses! so I don't know where to stop for the "puree" part, but it should be pretty simple, although the amounts, and what "spice" entails will be the next problem.
Then I said to myself. . . .
Oh wait-----Why don't I just look for a recipe online, or in one of my many cookbooks??? Sure enough, I found literally dozens, no, hundreds of recipes for this tomatoey deliciousness. Now, to find the one that suits me, and add or tweak to my taste...RECIPE COMING SOON!
Normally, this thinking thing can get me in lots of trouble. . . .And it might still. . . . . .
