Tomato Sauce Confession

Geoff made a confession this weekend. He doesn't like Barbara Kingsolver's Family Secret Tomato Sauce (see January 30 post) that we canned last summer. He rarely tells me that he doesn't like something that I've made so this must be serious. Well, it turns out that he doesn't think that the ingredients that I was so intrigued with - nutmeg and cinnamon - belong in tomato sauce. Caroline seems mixed on this one. I have 5 more quarts of the sauce so I hope that she will help me eat it. I have about a half cup left from last week so I will pack it in her lunch tomorrow. At the very least, I know that she will eat the pasta. But for the record, I love this sauce.
