This came from the "Tightwad Gazette" and is amazing with homegrown tomatoes!

I have made this sauce many times....One year I made around 30 quarts of it. I lined quart sized yogurt tubs with freezer bags, filled, twist tied them shut and froze them upright. Later after they were completely frozen I pulled the bags out and stacked them like cord wood along the short wall of my chest freezer. We at this at least once a week over the winter and never tired of it. It makes excellent pizza sauce/bruschetta.
