Title: Escalon 6 in 1 - Miami/FLL?
Post by: schone on November 16, 2019, 11:11:53 PM
Hi All,

I'm looking where can I find Escalon 6 in 1 around Miami/FLL in a retail store, in singular units.  I am trying to work on my own sauce rather than buying some chain sauce and don't want to order a full case of Escalon only to find that I'm not a fan.

Thanks

Thanks so much for that! Indeed they had the Escalon and a bunch more.  Unfortunately only in a big container, but still got it anyways :)

Glad we could help. I love GFS. They have all kinds of pizza making stuff. Did you grab some Grande cheese, or a 50# sack of All Trumps, along with the Escalon's?

I had a can of 6 in 1ís in my hand this afternoon at GFS. In reading the label I learned that like the 7/11ís I tried a few weeks ago, these had not had the skins removed. The taste of the 7/11ís was good and I imagine that the same could be said for the 6 in 1ís but I bought one #10 can ground peeled instead, which I have been using in our meatball sauce for many years.


That will be a big project and will begin in about 3 weeks. It will take 3 cases (18 cans) of ground peeled and a coucple cans of whole pear shaped tomatoes. With the other ingrediemts added to make the finished sauce it works out to almost exactly double the weight of the meatballs: approximately 80 lbs of meatballs and 160 lbs of sauce. We are going to have to scratch a few names to make sure we can do this with one  big batch. First batch should make 18 pans of 35, or 630 meatballs. I have one business supplier I still want to give a large pan to for their family run business. Two other suppliers I regularly took packages of 24 or more meatballs wonít be making the cut as I have not dome anything with them since getting sick, nor have they done anything for me in the last two seasons.Our list of friends and neighbors should still work as a couple have moved away and we dod not know their new buyers well enough yet.


I still do not have much[size=78%] stammina but have gotten better at working smart. Our [/size][/size][size=78%]sons, daughter, and their spouses will be here and want to help so that will be nice. Without their help , I would probably try to keep it to 25 lbs of meatball mix, something my wife could help me complete a couple evenings after scchool.[/size]
