Homemade Tomato Sauce

I got  enough amount of  ripe tomatoes to can so I decided to  make tomato sauce   last week with the help of my kids.

Procedure:

  • Gather the tomatoes you want to can.
  • Boil a big pot of water.
  • Drop the tomatoes  in  the super hot water.
  • The skin will crack after few minutes.
  • You can start  peeling them off.  Just be careful as the meat  would be hot.  
My kids love peeling off the skin.

  1. When the skin has been removed, remove the core as you don't want it in your sauce.  
  2. After that,   slice them up according to your desired size.  I like chunks of tomatoes in a sauce so I slice them a little bigger.
See the pile of the skin?  That's how easy it comes off when the water is boiling hot.

  • When you are ready to cook the sauce, put them in a big  pot, add water and  the spices that you desired.  I add, onions, sugar, salt, black pepper, oregano, olive oil, and sometimes  I also add  bell peppers but this time, I did not add bell pepper.  
I put Newman's Own Organic Olive Oil to use.  We made six and one half quarts that day.  I usually  use  the half bottle  in spaghetti right away.  Make sure to sterilize your bottles before  storing your sauce.
Another  exciting part that the kinds look into the process is hearing the  lids popped, which means that it is sealed already.
I have  a basket full of ripe tomatoes again ready to be canned, I might do it in a couple of days.  So there you go Chefs,  my homemade tomato sauce from my homegrown tomatoes. Nothing can bet  that!

Wow! good for you,Rose. Homemade is always the best way. I really prefer organic, sad thing I can't do an garden since we still leave in the apartment. You have a good helper there.

Hi Sarah Jean, sorry if my written explanation confuses yu. Well, the good thing is, just like what you said, the photos helped understand what I am trying to say. Thanks for visiting.

Ane said...

Oh my gosh! That is just awesome how you can make your own tomatoes! :) and YUM, it sounds so delish on pasta or whatever. :D

Kha Arabejo said...

Wow fresh tomatoes! My daughter was with me earlier as I opened your link Ate Rose, you may not asks me but she is a big fan of tomatoes. I don't know where on earth she learned eating uncooked tomatoes because we never practice it here but she does. So when she saw the big pictures she said "mommy matis un wow! penge"

Sara Martin said...

we eat a lot of sauce. thanks for making it look so easy!

Jean said...

wow! thanks for sharing this Ms. Rose. I will surely try this at home since all of us in the family like tomatoes much. :)

MikiHope said...

That certainly will save you a lot of money! And there is nothing like homemade sauce especially when you use your own tomatoes from your garden!!

nova hedges said...

That is so cool..that way you can save money from buying tomato sauces and at the same time its also organic since you make your own.

jheylo said...

Wow! That's really good at least you don't have to buy tomato sauce anymore.

Canning your own sauce will definitely save you money.

Jennifer Williams said...

What a great idea. My garden did not make it this year,hopefully next year will be a better crop. I am doing more homemade and want to start canning so thank you for this.

becca said...

wow thank you for this you should totally do a post on how to can for newbies like me

Lainy said...

WOW! That is simply clever, Rose! With all the home duties you have, you still were able to accomplish that! Ikaw na ang tunay na reyna ng tahanan! Hands down! ;-)

Cyndie said...

i used to do this with my Grandmother. Brings back fond memories.

April M. said...

That is a great sauce. I made salsa with my tomatoes.

nova hedges said...

Very simple and organic tomato sauces, at the same time your kid had fun helping you while doing the sauce.

Shela said...

Delicious! Homemade is always the best! Tomatoes are always present here too :) My doter eats them like candy @-@

papaleng said...

Homemade products specially yung galing sa organic plants is great. Wish, gumawa ako noon. Alam mo I have lots of tomato plants back then, what I do is pinamigay ko lang ang mga bunga sa 'mababait' kong neighbors.

Rcel said...

Wow sis! That is amazing! Is it not a tough job? I have never done that, ever! Whenever I got plenty of tomatoes around, esp. during harvest season, I tend to make Sweet and sour menus often just to consume them. You just gave me an idea now! :)

Dhadha said...

Wow! Freshly made tomato sauce! I bet this is much yummy compared sa mga nka pack na tomato sauce sa supermaket. And healthy too dahil walang preservatives. Will share this to my mom pra ma try din namin. Never pa kasi ako nka try ng freshly made na tomato sauce. Hihi. :)

Algene May C. said...

Oh another home made recipe! Kailangan ko to for my movie dates with friends sa house.. Instant sauce for our chips.

lencilicious said...

Wow, that's very good Rose. You saved a lot of bucks for that tomato sauce, I think.

mtrguanlao said...

Truly great! Now I know how to make one at home and I think I will make one soon :)

Jessica Cassidy said...

Yay! for those yummy home made tomato sauce Sis Rose :-) your kids are very helpful too :-) It saves you money than buying the tomato sauce at the grocery store :-) My in-laws do the same thing as well :-)

cheerful said...

kulasa said...
