Created in the 1950's, by Mr. Herman T. Jones,this sauce has been perfected over the years. Mr. Jones lovingly flavored his sauce with honey and smokey apple wood. As the time passed, his sauce became a huge hit! His grandson was entrusted with the recipe, who able to create the recipe for mass production. This is one sauce, you will not want to miss!
I was quite excited to see this package arrive at my door! However, I was quite shocked to see how compact the packaging was! Upon opening, I thought, "surely this was a mistake". I had envisioned bottles, just like every other BBQ sauce and mix that I have ever encountered! I must say, I absolutely LOVE the was this mix is packaged! So perfect for me!!
Pouches! Who would have thought!! I immediately opened the Original Mild! Oh my heavens! It was mouth watering! I wasn't planning on using any BBQ sauce at all until next week, but I quickly re-arranged my menu schedule!
Seeing as we are on temporary duty, we didn't bring a BBQ :( So I made meatloaf. My kids LOVE meatloaf, so I was extremely anxious to make and put this sauce to the test!!
Creating my BBQ sauce was very simple. I followed the directions printed clearly on each pouch. I love that it requires ingredients that I always have on hand!
Now, how simple is that?!
Herman T's Sauce Mix was a hit...I doubled my recipe for meatloaf, and the entire thing was gone! There wasn't enough! All the kids wanted more! Number 4, doesn't like BBQ sauce at all. Usually I have to leave a section of my meatloaf, well, naked! She always tells me that it is "too spicy". Not this time! She couldn't get enough! In fact, she was quite upset when she was told there was no more. To the point of tears!
Mr. Herman T. Jones, you have my seal approval! If my daughter will eat it with no problems, everyone else will love it! And that's the truth!
