Fresh Tomato Sauce Ingredients


A great tomato sauce using fresh ingredients.

FRESH TOMATO SAUCE RECIPE

2 lbs very ripe fresh plum tomatoes
1/2 cup oil
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp oregano (or to taste)
1 TBS sweet basil or 8 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp parsley

Plunge tomatoes into boiling water for 12 seconds. Drain, cool and slip the skins off.  Slice tomatoes and discard the seeds; roughly chop.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium and add the onions and garlic. Saute and stir until onions are transparent. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and parsley.

Cook, uncovered, on low for 2 hours. Stir occasionally. Makes approximately 4 cups.

NOTE:

For a quick sauce, cook the garlic only in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil for 30 seconds and add the rough-chopped tomatoes in pan.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Add salt, pepper, oregano, basil and parsley; if desired. Heat through and serve. 

FREEZE:

Cool completely and freeze in resealable bags.
