You can freeze it, can it or serve it fresh.
All you need is 18 medium tomatoes and a bag of Mrs. Wages Pasta Sauce tomato mix.
Step 1: Wash your tomatoes and scald a few minutes in boiling water. Just long enough for the skins to crack.
Step 2: Place the tomatoes in cold water. Once cooled, remove skins, cut out cores and squeeze out excess juices.
Step 3: Puree in blender until smooth
Step 4: Combine puree, Pasta Sauce Mix,1/4 c. sugar and small can tomato paste (I add this to make the sauce thicker) in large pot and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
When your sauce is done you can serve it immediately, freeze it or can it in a hot water bath for 40 minutes (directions are on the bag).

|The taste of FRESH tomato sauce is amazingly delightful in the middle of winter.|
The sauce is a bit thinner than store bought sauce, but it is full of fresh flavor - something you can't get from a jar.
