The Secret’s in the Sauce
Photograph by William Albert Allard

A family cellar doubles as a sauce factory each August when cousins Maria Gasbarro (left) and Adriana Susi turn 30 bushels of tomatoes into 400 jars of sauce flavored with garlic, onions, and parsley. Most Italians in the North End don’t make their own pasta sauce anymore, Gasbarro says. But these two traditionalists have been canning tomato sauce together in Susi’s cellar every summer since they came from Abruzzo, Italy, almost 40 years ago. “Canning makes good memories,” says Susi. “You talk, you laugh, and then you cry because it’s so hot!”
