Gram’s Chili Sauce

Sally Baker-Williams
Durham, Arkansas

My gram made this chili sauce which is sort of a cross between tomato jam and a tomato relish every summer. Spending time with my Gram in the kitchen, just the two of us was something I coveted. My love of not only cooking but food preservation goes back to these times in the kitchen with her and with my mother. When I preserve food I feel a deep generational pull, even if I am using a new recipe. My ancestry of strong women are walking the kitchen floor with me.
