Today is our annual Lord's Auction at church. Sixty plus years. I have loved it since I was a kid. After being gone for 25 plus years and returning, nothing has changed. The cakes, pies, candies, home canned goods, crafts and beautiful handmade quilts and linens, etc, are all still there. Mr. Fuller(85) has been making his cream candy since I can remember.
There could not be an auction without hot dogs and Linda and Janice's Hot Dog Sauce. This is also nice to make and freeze in 1 or 2 cup containers.
Hot Dog Sauce
3 pounds ground chuck
1 large onion, chopped, more if you like
3 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 bottle ketchup
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
Chili powder and garlic to taste
Brown ground chuck, drain; add onion, garlic, celery and peppers. Add other ingredients and cook until thick. May cook in slow cooker for 2 hours or so. This is always better made the day before serving.
