Hi there, I would like to ship some home made sauce to my cousin across the country. What is the best method? Thanks!

When shipping perishable food that is subject to spoilage, I would suggest an insulated shipping container with a cold pack inside. When I receive Vermont smoked sausage from the other side of the country, that is the way it is sent. I would also suggest a strong leakproof glass jar, ie canning jar, well wrapped.

You can consider canning using ball jars and the 2-piece lid that greatest a vacuum.  You can also consider pasteurizing it (very easy to do)

Just google or search YouTube.  Look for canning tomatoes or peaches or something.

If you go this route you won't have to fart around with the cooler dealio.  ;)

Vermont smoked does not need to be refrigerated, nor does canned tomato sauce.

I better let the retailer know that they are wasting my money in shipping fees!

I won't purchase from anyone who offers a (seeming) lower price but then sneaks more profit in through the back door called "S&H".  Some places get real crazy with their "handling" fee.  ::)
