    barefootmommawv's Note:

    This is a very mild spaghetti sauce. Thick and chunky just like we like it. I make this with the veggies from my garden. I have tired many different homemade sauces and this is the first one that has wowed my DH.

      This is one great recipe!! My aunt recommended it to me, and I've made (and canned) three batches already!! Although I must cook mine down quite a bit, b/c I only get 5 qts and not the 7-8 noted in the recipe.
      I made one major change that I would highly recommend - to be safe when canning tomatoes, all recipes MUST be acidified, otherwise you run the risk of spoilage. B/c of that, I added 1/2 cup red wine vinegar and 3/4 cup lemon juice, and upped the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. It may sound like a lot of acid, but it is needed to keep my (and your) family safe.
      other than that, this is one amazing recipe, I'm sure it will taste better after sitting in the jars for a few weeks/months.

      I have canned 3 batches of this recipe this summer using tomatoes, peppers, onions and herbs from my vegetable garden. I have used this sauce for homemade pizza from scratch, spaghetti and lasagna as well. The sauce is a great sauce. A little sweet and that is what I love about it the most. When I cann it, I use quart, pint & half pint jars so that I will have a variety of sizes for whatever I decide to fix, & so none goes to waste by opening a jar too big for what I am fixing. Thank you so much for this recipe.

      I made this recipe exactly as written and it was wonderful. I gave a jar to my neighbor and he said it was the best, just enough tang. I have made 4 batches and am preparing to make another. I think I will up the brown sugar to 4 tablespoons this next batch and throw in some parsley. We simply love this recipe. Thank you for posting.
