Home Made Tomato Sauce

We came into some tomatoes, so made some sauce. I got 2 gallons out of 16 tomatoes plus other veggies. I will use this sauce in several different recipes.

How to Make Home Made Tomato Sauce


  • 1In a large soup pot, boil some water. Drop the tomatoes into the boiling water for a few minutes, then into cold water. Remove the skins from all the tomatoes. Discard the skins.
  • 2Put the peeled tomatoes in a bowl and set aside.
  • 3Clean out the pot and add some oil; saute on medium low.
  • 4Saute the cut up onion. Soon as the onions are just transparent, add the chopped up Portabella mushrooms. Saute a few more minutes.

    Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 6Add the tomatoes and break them up into smaller pieces. Stir around and add some of the herbs. Simmer for approximately 35-40 minutes.
