|Order the O R I G I N A L SOUTH PHILLY GRAVY
[ Hey YO . . . it's Ex C E L L ent !]
FYI: "Tomato juice and spaghetti sauce both contain folate, lycopene and other nutrients to
keep arteries young. Recommended amount: Eight ounces a day of juice;
Two tablespoons of spaghetti sauce." [Insert]: or more, (spaghetti sauce,) yeaaa!
There are many so-called 'natural' products on the market and most if not all are pretty
tasteless!-- in my experience. When I began to look for a factory that would make SPG
exactly the way I made it in my kitchen I didn't know it would take 4-years! to find one,
until I began calling states other than my own in NJ. But they all said the same thing,
"why do you want to cook it?" which was how I discovered that pasta sauces produced in
factories, sold for mass consumption and found on supermarket shelves, are 'cooked' no
longer! than 6-minutes, 10, if it's left in the kettle, 10-minutes max. I knew I wasn't going to
do that. I was from South Philly.
SPG is made exactly as it was in my kitchen, fresh-cut whole tomatoes, fresh onions, fresh
long pepper hots, (in the 'HOT'), fresh garlic, expeller pressed virgin olive oil, good red wine,
good spices, love. The crushed tomatoes part is Scalfani made through a secret special
process & touted on a Martha Stewart show as the only crushed tomatoes to use if one is
serious about making a good pasta sauce, & sweetened w/just a few raisins, Sicilian style!*
