Tomato Sauce

Linda Griffith


My tomatoes bushes have blooms and tiny tomatoes on them and this is one of the things you can enjoy next winter when all of the thoughts of tomato sandwiches have been put away. There is no comparison to homemade tomato sauce and canned tomato sauce and wintertime is such a perfect time to have this on hand; chili, spaghetti, and lots of other comfort foods will be so delicious with this recipe. It goes in the freezer so you don't have to worry about jars and lids. Hope you enjoy this recipe
