Recipe Find
May 21st, 2009 by Mike

I got the strangest call from my mom a little while ago. She was looking for one of her recipes and wasn’t able to find it in her binder. She said that she recalled my scanning that book several years ago and wondered if I still had it. Wouldn’t you know that I do still have it! I had to pull an old external hard drive, but I have it! The file is dated January 21, 2001. That’s over eight years ago. How many computers have I been through in eight years? I’m afraid to even guess.

Since I pulled the recipe, I thought I’d share it with you. Maybe some day, I’ll share the whole book. It’s got well over a hundred recipes from family friends, many of whom have since gone.

Hot Dog Sauce
2 lbs hamburger (browned and chopped)
3/4 lbs ground suet (optional)
2 onions, diced
1/8 c salt
1 box chili powder (small)
1 tbs cloves (use 2 tsp for less spicy)
1 tbs pepper
1 tbs nutmeg (use 2 tsp for less spicy)
1 small box paprika
1 1/3 tbs sugar
1 14 oz bottle ketchup
7 c water
1 c flour (mixed with additional 1 cup water)

Add all ingredients to hamburg and simmer for two hours. Use a 6 qt pan.

I just found some open-source software for recipes. Maybe I’ll publish a few of the gems I have.
