  • What kind of tomatoes are they? Some varieties aren't as good for sauce because they are very watery. If they are a meatier variety, like romas or beefsteak, they'll be good. You want to boil some water, and dip them briefly, then transfer to a bowl of ice water. This will make them easy to peel. Once peeled, cut in half and de-seed. Put the tomato flesh in a large, non-reactive (re: not aluminum) pan with a bit of salt (a can add more later, but you can't get rid of it once it's there!), some basil, oregano, and a tiny bit of sugar. If you want to add onion, now's the time. As it heats, mash with a potato masher. cont...

  • Bring to a simmer, adding a bit of liquid if needed. Now, if you want smoother sauce, you can either use an immersion blender or use a regular blender. You'll have to do it in batches with a blender, but it goes quickly. Add some olive oil, not alot, and if you want, adjust the seasonings. Simmer until it reduces slightly (low heat). You can either freeze or can it at this point.
    If you want extra flavor, get a hunk of chuck roast and a hunk of pork roast, brown with some onion slices, and add to the sauce. Simmer until the meat is falling apart tender. Remove and eat with pasta or alone.
