The gardens at camp are full of tomatoes and not many people are around to use them. So, today I made tomato sauce. I have made it before (in a much larger quantity) and I remembered it being way messier and way more work than it turned out to be. I took the time to peel the tomatoes, which actually took no time at all. I just dropped them into boiling water for 30 seconds and then into ice water. The skin practically fell right off of them!
Here is the recipe:
10 tomatoes, peeled and chopped (I prefer amish paste tomatoes for sauce)
1 red onion minced
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 pinch of sugar
1 pinch of salt
seasonings to taste (basil, oregano, rosemary, and fennel seed are my favorites)
Add all the ingredients to a saucepan on the stove and let it simmer till its good and cooked. You can add cornstarch or flour if you want a thicker sauce but I just left mine as is.
Store it in the fridge, just like you would an open jar of store bought sauce. Enjoy!
