Smoked Tomato Sauce

Raven Higheagle


This is a zesty tomato-based sauce that is very versatile. I use it as a foundation for everything from enchilada sauce to spaghetti sauce. I make lots of it when tomatoes are at their peek in the summer, to freeze for the winter when I want the taste of fresh tomatoes.
