I usually make my own sauce, but I picked up a bottle of Hunts Smokey Mesquite sauce the other day just to try it. After I got home, I thought to read the ingredients. I was shocked to see that the FIRST ingredient was high fructose corn syrup! Not tomato, or even water! Back to home-made! I think that using ketchup without hfc would be the way to go with this.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
