Great way to use up those extra tomatoes from the garden. Smells great while cooking - nice blend of ingredients. It was a bit too sweet, I think because I used garden fresh tomatoes that are sweet all by themselves, so next time I would add less sugar. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in large saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium high, stirring often. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until thickened to desired sauce consistency.
  2. Add more salt if needed.
  3. Pour into hot sterilized pint jars to within 1/2 inch from top.
  4. Place sterilized metal lids on jars and screw metal bands on securely.
  5. For added assurance against spoilage, you may choose to process in a boiling water bath for 35 minutes.
  6. If you would rather, this may be cooled, poured into containers leaving 1 inch head space and frozen. Makes 3 1/2 pints.
  7. MEATY SPAGHETTI SAUCE: Brown 2 1/4 pounds lean ground beef. Add to Tomato Sauce. Stir. Freeze in 2 cups containers.
