The pampas grass (Panicum virgatum) is a perennial herbaceous plant native to South America. It grows up to 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. Its leaves are alternate, ovate or lanceolate, with 5–10 leaflets per leaflet. The flower stalks are white, 1/2 inch long and have five petals each. Each flower produces one seed pod containing two seeds.
Pamela sauce is a type of tomato sauce made from tomatoes that have been processed through a series of mechanical processes to remove their juices and reduce them into a thick paste. The result is a smooth, creamy sauce with less acidity than most other types of tomato sauces.
It is commonly used in Mexican cuisine and may be found in many restaurants throughout the United States. It is often sold at grocery stores under the brand name “Tom Thumb Sauce.” The sauce is usually served cold, but it can also be refrigerated for several days before serving. Some versions contain vinegar instead of water.
In Mexico, pamela sauce is known as chile de la pina (chili pepper). In England it is known as ketchup.
Tom Thumb is a brand of canned tomato products sold in the United States. The brand is currently owned by the Bumble Bee Seafood Company, a subsidiary of the Japanese-based seafood company, The Suzuki Group.
Tom Thumb ketchup has been part of American culture for more than a century. During that time, it has inspired songs, films and even a creature in the Pokémon universe.
In 1869, a Russian immigrant named Gussie Weiss began selling tomato preserves from a pushcart on the streets of New York City. To save money, he used the discarded tomato peels and skins to make his own tomato sauce. The ketchup was so successful that he soon opened a factory and began selling it in glass bottles.
The company continued to grow over the years, and in 1933 the company trademarked the name “Tom Thumb”. At the time, the company’s most popular product was its tomato juice. Today, it is best known for its ketchup.
