    Jezski's Note:

    You'll be so glad you have this around February! A very fresh-tasting tomato sauce. Simple, only 5 ingredients, if you count the salt! Pretty quick to make, with minimal fuss. I have used any and all types of tomatoes and it is almost as good made with canned tomatoes in winter. I believe this is from a Sarah Leah Chase cookbook. Excellent for freezing. I've been making it for years. Every once in a while I toy with the idea of adding several cloves of garlic but kinda hate to mess with success. Just recently I used it in a recipe for Chicken Parmesan. All I can say is WOW! Sometimes quick and easy is best.

      This really is a good way to use up fresh tomatoes! We used four cloves of garlic, and also added about half a teaspoon of oregano. Still, we wished it had had more flavor. It is a great recipe that could be tweaked in all sorts of ways. But the best part is being able to make good use of fresh tomatoes. Thank you for this blueprint!
