Where can I get Homestead Meat and Mushroom Pasta Sauce in a can?

For generations, San Franciscans have enjoyed Homestead's canned meat and mushroom pasta sauce (many families call it their "sunday gravy"). They have used the sauce straight out of the can, as well; using it as their base to add their own special family ingredients. Unfortunately, our canned sauce is no longer available in stores. However, you can buy it directly from Homestead in frozen plastic bags. While you are there, you can also pick up some other great tasting Homestead products.

Alternatively, you can order spice packets (with the same ingredients we use) and make our sauce in your kitchen. For easy ordering go to the Place an Order page.
