I always thought making your own tomato sauce was some gruelling ordeal, but it turns out it really isn’t. Plus it tastes way fresher than store bought!
I had a mix of tomatoes in my refrigerator, so the sauce ended up being a rusty red….very pretty.
6 lbs tomatoes (scored)
1 garlic clove – minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
salt to taste
1. Place scored tomatoes in boiling water for about 1 minute. Remove tomatoes and place in bowl of ice water. Peel skins off and put in food processor. Blend to desired texture.
2. Cook garlic and a drizzle of olive oil in a saucepan on low heat for a few minutes. Add tomatoes and remaining ingredients to saucepan and simmer for about 1 hour.
