1 lb. hamburger
1/3 c. chopped green pepper
1/3 c. onion
1 qt warm water
15 oz tomato sauce or 3 cans tomato paste
1 t chili powder
1 T red pepper
1 T paprika
1 T allspice
1 t oregano
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t garlic salt
1 t onion salt

Saute vegetables and brown hamburger.  Add rest of ingredients.  Simmer for 2 hours.


1 c. molasses
1 c. mustard (prepared)
1 c. vinegar
1 t. marjoram
1 t oregano
1 t basil
1 t thyme
3/4 c catsup
3/4 c oil
6 T soy sauce
2 t Tabasco
freshly ground black pepper
crushed red pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until consistency is even.  Mixture keeps under refrigeration for months.


1 egg
1 c. cooking oil
3 T salt
1 t pepper
1 T poultry seasoning
2 c. cider vinegar (Don't use white)

Start by putting egg in the blender and beating thoroughly.  Continue to beat while slowly adding the oil to the egg.  This makes a thick mayonnaise-like mixture which is the key to success in keeping the oil uniformly suspended in the vinegar.  Continue to beat while adding 1/4 of the vinegar and then the salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning.  Finally add the remaining vinegar and mix thoroughly.  The sauce may have to be stirred occasionally during the barbequing.  Refrigerate the left over sauce in a covered container.  It will last indefinitely.


1/2 c. mayonnaise
2-3 T finely chopped dill pickle
1 t minced onion

Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Makes about 2/3 cup.  Tastes best when made ahead and allowed to develop flavor in the refrigerator.

Here are just a few sauce recipes I thought you might like to try this summer.

Be With God,

These all sound delicious and just in time for the holiday celebration (although I can't wait for the 4th of July to be over. One of my dogs is very frightened by the sound of fireworks.) I want to try the Hot Dog Sauce but I'm missing a few spices that I'll add to my grocery list. Thank you for these recipes.

The recipes sound great Jean. Thanks for sharing. Been praying for you all this week. I have been reading and enjoying but not commenting everyday as I have been very busy. We are preparing to bring my mom home from hospital Friday and we are so greatful she will be home it has been along 3 months for everyone especially my dad. I am greatful we are in the same building and I can help with her care. Take care everyone and I hope you are all having a wonderful week!!

Just got a call from Jean and we may get an Amish man to leave a post on here. He heard of Jean and David's situation and said if they needed someone to fill in for them he would do it for them. I told her to tell him we can use both him and Martha. So I will see what happens.


Veronica said...

That is great news that he would be willing to help Jean out. I am sure he would have some great knowledge to share with us all. What a wonderful blessing to learn so much about there way of life. Thanks for sharing everyone!!

Hello Veronica,
He is going to a post. I just spoke with him tonight on David's cell phone. He is on the volunteer Fire Department with David. I spoke about him in the dog post Jean had a while ago. He is the fellow that had the puppies he couldn't sell and gave the to the children coming out of school. He also spoke with Michael about having his birthday on October 31st as is Michael's. I have some questions here to give him that people have asked. He seems like a really nice person with a sense of humor. I met him and his wife at David's grandmother's funeral, but I met so many people I don't remember who is who with some of the people. He also was at the Haiti Auction and saw the buggy that was up for sale so I might have him do that post too, as he can go into more detail that I can.
