What is bottled thick meat sauce??? Can you give me an example? Is it found in the grocery store??? I am lost. I found this EXACT recipe in my grandma's 1942 Good Housekeeping cookbook and I cannot for the life of me figure out what an example of bottled meat sauce is. Is it like a gravy, kitchen bouquet???? what is it??
