    The_Swedish_Chef's Note:

    I discovered this sauce recipe by total accident, randomly paging through a 33 year old Sunset canning book. Once made, it is the BEST fresh tomato sauce I've ever tried or made. Well worth the time it takes to make from scratch.

      I thought this was pretty good---I made it as described, minus the anise (I didn't have any). It did come out somewhat thinner than I expected but I supposed I could cut back on the liquid some or cook it down longer. In any case, I wanted to use up a bunch of my garden tomatoes and this did the trick. Thanks for posting.
