my homemade tomato sauce

i mentioned in one of my posts last month that "i have efficiently & effectively used/saved/stored most of the tomatoes in our garden."

yes! and how? in 4 easy steps...

1. cut tomatoes {any size-it doesn't matter}.
2. bring to a boil in a large pot.
3. take the lid off & simmer for an hour {or more depending on the thickness of the sauce}.
4.let the sauce cool down & puree in a blender. place in freezer bags {fill the bags halfway-it will expand in the freezer}.
that's it! i have never bought canned tomatoes since i started doing this last year. fresh is definitely better & i can actually taste the difference.
