Old-fashioned chili sauce recipe

Makes for great gift giving at the holidays too!

The chili sauce recipe is sweet and tangy and something I grew up on in New England.  Makes a welcome condiment to hot dogs and beans on a Saturday night.  It goes well with any meat, hot or cold.  I like it on the side with an omelette for a weeknight supper. 12 Large ripe tomatoes 2 large onions 4 green peppers 2 tbsp salt 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp ground cloves 2 1/2 cups vinegar. Peel the tomatoes and onions, remove seeds from peppers and chop them fine.  (to peel the tomatoes I put them in scalding water, then toss in cold water/ice bath) Stir all together and add salt, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and vinegar.  Cook slowly for 45-60 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally.  ( I cook for about a couple hours)  It makes the house smell so good! Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal.  Makes 4 pints. If you want to make it hot: Add 2 hot red peppers, seeded and chopped to the pot. Also of course goes very well with chili and tacos.
