Who is this lady?
Gina Petitti was born in 1935 in Faeto, Italy. Her family ran a farm in Italy and she met her husband, Vito, in the same town. In 1970 Gina, Vito, and her 4 children immigrated to America. Gina’s husband passed away in 2012, but she is surrounded by a large family, which includes 9 grandchildren, and lives 5 minutes away from her eldest daughter in New Jersey. Gina spends her time cooking, gardening, and being an active member of her local Church.

Where does Gina get her recipes?
Most of these recipes are from what she learned growing up in Italy, but some of them have evolved over time. She has also learned new recipes from friends and family in America. She is always eager to try new things.

Why is no one helping her in the video?
Grandma Gina doesn’t want help! Usually, it’s because we will slow her down or not do it “her way.” For the videos we only show her, but when the camera cuts we jump in and help form the cookies or prep for the next step.

Why don’t we buy her a new…?
Grandma Gina has a closet and garage full of new gadgets, spoons, forks, pots, etc… but she doesn’t like them because she is used to doing it with her old tools. She has fun getting her hands dirty!

Who is behind the camera?
Her retired son-in-law films, her daughter helps her prep, and she usually has one or two grandkids in the kitchen.

Does Gina read the comments?
We print out and show her how much love she gets from all her viewers, and she is very thankful and hopes you enjoy her cooking! Your comments bring her lots of joy, laughter, and inspiration to make more videos to share with you.

Thank you for watching, we hope you subscribe, and we will see you in our next video!

  1. Mama Gina, thank you for sharing, canning of tomatoes recipe. Have a good week and God bless amen.

  2. Now that is a true Nanno. Wonderful lady and wonderful sauce.

  3. n sisti says:

    Wonderful Gina Thank you so much!! I have been doing something similar using mixed heirloom tomatoes different color tomato blacks yellows orange pink and reds–comes out fantastic but you do have to boil it down alot. different taste than the traditional romas –much sweeter. Might be worth a try. Best Regards

  4. God Bless you grandma Gina. It is a lot of work to jar tomatoes but you do it with such joy. Your family is blessed to have you. Thank you for sharing ❤ 😊

  5. Bellisimo! I love you nonna, thank you for sharing your generational knowledge❤ I will treasure and God willing pass on this knowledge to my family too❤❤

  6. “I’m so happy when I come to the shelf, all full, it’s an offer for my family”. Melts my heart…

    Such beautiful red tomatoes

  8. Jessica A says:

    While preparing to can some beans and tomato I began missing the summers I spent as a child with my grandma. She'd can for her 5 children (and others) to feed us grandchildren. Reminiscing about breaking beans, chopping cabbage, peeling&coring apples. Grandma with her huge pressure canners and water bathers. When stumbling across your video I watched with so much joy. My grandma was really small like yours. She also had a heavy country accent from the southern U.S… I hope the youth of today can one day reminisce about their grandma, as I have this day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your lovely grandmother with the world… I just wanna hug her…She is a treasure for certain! 🤗

  9. she's the absolute best!!!!

  10. MommaPreps 4 says:

  14. Nonna! Thank you! I have been canning for two years now and they always come perfect!

  15. Nonna please tell me name of machine thank you

  16. Jim Bob says:

    I have a canning manual that calls for ascorbic acid, is this necessary for the sauce to keep?

  17. Mohamed Taha says:

    Where can find this machine that separate the liquid from the skin and seeds

  18. Thank you very much shering your recipe. 😍Love from Hungary

  21. D Faz says:

  22. Beautiful!!! Thank you so much for showing us how to do this!!!

  23. Great job Gina, thankyou for your time

  24. I have a hand version of that machine from Italy. I dont cook them . I puree them straight from my garden.

  25. OMG Love this lady!! Had a hard time with understanding her, but I watched the whole video anyway. Lol This is a very different way of making tomato sauce. Very Interesting! I am surprised she doesn't water bath it for even 10 min. Obviously it works the way she does it! Thanks so much!

  26. W Sparkes says:
