Tomato Sauce Recipe!

Sorry - No tutorial today - Camera needs fresh batteries (fingers crossed that's all it is!)  Ill make a tutorial soon - We are JUST starting to get tomatoes so I am sure Ill have plenty of time.

Easy Tomato Sauce

yeld: 5 quarts

(feel free to divide in half (5 pints))

  • 13 pounds Roma tomatoes (any kind will do in my opinion)
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2  cups chopped onion
  • 15 cloves of crushed garlic
  • basil to taste (I start with 1/8 cup dried)
  • salt to taste
    Bring a big pot of water to boil and add the tomatoes just for a couple of minutes until you notice the skins breaking.  I suggest doing a couple batches to make it easier.

    cooking just a few minutes just until the skin breaks.

    Drain and remove skins, core, and run the "meat" thru a food mill or food processor.

    In a large sauce/soup pot, heat oil to medium, then add the garlic, onion & basil and cook 4-5 minutes.  You want them sweated to a light golden color!

    Add in tomato sauce and simmer 30 minutes or until it reaches desired thickness stirring frequently!

    Easy Peasy!

    Fill your sterilized jars and leave 1/2 inch headspace.

    wipe rim clean and put on your lid and screw down tight.

    Can per your method/canners instructions or head over to Ball Canning Jars site.  Tons of recipes and info!
