Bess' Recipes

Want to cook like Bess Truman? You can view her handwritten recipes from NPS Harry Truman website. I thought I'd share her spaghetti and meatballs recipe:
Spagetti [sic] & Meat balls-
Cook spagetti [sic] in salt water
Then blanche & strain good. Put
aside. Sauce: mix these together & simmer ½ hr.
In pot put:
1 ½ cup water
1 16 oz. C. Tom.
1 C. Tom. Paste
3 T. oil
1 chopped onion
1 clove garlic
1 t. salt
Brown hamb. & onion
& garlic before mixing
together - Cook ½ hr.
Stir often to keep from burning.
