This post is in a fun way a retort to Gegys recipe. In a past post I said that I had "Jeromes" recipe. I wasn't kidding. I've made this recipe 3 or 4 times in past years, but since it is a bulk recipe I had to can it in quart jars to keep it. Needless to say I'm quite popular when ever I open a jar. It is the real deal.
I grew up along the Monongahela, and at 18 my first apartment was in Galatin/Sunnyside, a 5 minute walk to Jerome's. (KCbaglady... thanks for the history of the place... I hung out there in the early and late 80's and Grey's was before my time. P.S. I sent you a message.)
Anyways Gregys.... the recipe I have has 13 ingredients including water. For teasing puposes I'll give you the first four ingredients on the list. If you can guess the rest I'll tell you if you're right or wrong. Lol, call me bored. The first four ingredients in this recipe are:
1 lg. can tomato puree 56 oz.
1 lg. can tomato sauce 56 oz.
tomato paste 5 sm. can
tobasco sauce 1 bottle
I will tell you that there is nothing in the recipe that includes: V-8, mustard, spinach, lettuce, beets, parsley, carrots, celery, cinnamon, onion, marjoram, thyme, coriander, cumin, rosemary, orange peel, vit. C, lemon juice, citric acid, or oil of lemon.
BTW... there is an ingredient that makes it darker than tomato red, and there is some sugar in it, but I didn't say what kind or how much. Good luck.
Once again, thanks to anyone reading my silly post.
