Recipes from Hubby's Grandmother's Recipe Box (6)

This one is from a recipe card from a collection from Sun-Maid Raisins. On the back of each card is a fact about  raisins. I've included the one with this recipe.

Wrangler Barbeque Sauce
(Makes 1 3/4 to 2 cups)

1/3 chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
1 minced clove garlic
2 tablespoons oil or drippings
1 cup (8-ounce can) tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Sun-Maid Seedless or Golden Seedless Raisins
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Saute' onion, celery, green pepper and garlic in oil until transparent. Add remaining ingredients and simmer slowly 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot with spare ribs, meat balls, etc. (A contemporary recipe based on the campfire barbeques of the Old West).

Fact on the back of the card:
All of America's raisins come from the fertile San Joaquin Valley in California. This lush valley is surrounded by towering mountains. With water cascading from the Sierra Nevada Range, plenty of sun and little rain, the San Joaquin Valley provides ideal conditions for growing raisin grapes.
