Nothing says that summer is coming to an end, then when I go off and make my home made tomato sauce. Nearby I go to the Chesterfield Berry Farm to purchase 25 lb boxes of tomatoes. I prefer to use the roma or plum tomatoes. I used 1.5 boxes to get 5 quart bags of sauce.
All you need to do is preheat you oven (yes you heard me, you OVEN) to 350 degrees. Rinse off your tomatoes and then quarter them. If the tomatoes have a lot of liquid in them, scrape them out with your fingers. (obviously wash your hands prior to beginning as you should always before you cook). You then will arrange them on a cookie sheet.
Now it is time to add in your other veggies. I like to add Onions, Peppers and Mushrooms to the sauce. Chop them all up and saute in a pan until they are soft.
Once complete I place in Quart bags and place in the freezer for future use.
