Tomato Sauce

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.

Tomato Sauce

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.
