Homemade Tomato Sauce - Ingredients
Homemade Tomato Sauce – Ingredients
  • 12 to 15 lbs large slicing tomatoes, washed.
  • 2 med onions
  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1 oz each of fresh parsley and basil, cut into small pieces with the stems.
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, stripped
  • 1 oz salt, about 1/2 of an egg cup, or to taste
  • 1/2 oz ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 6 caps full of lemon juice, one for each 1-quart jar, and added before filling.


  1. Add 1 cup of water to a pot on the stovetop.
  2. Set to med heat and cover.
  3. Remove tops from tomatoes and cut around stems.
  4. Discard the stems and add tomato pieces to the blender.
  5. Slice the remaining tomatoes into 6 or 8 pieces and add to the blender.
  6. With each layer of tomatoes, add a layer of herbs and onion.
  7. Add salt and pepper proportionally to each load.
  8. Pulse and blend on low, adding ingredients until the blender reaches its capacity.
  9. Blend on low, increasing to medium then high, until completely reduced.
  10. Add to pot and stir.
  11. Repeat each step until the pot is at capacity, stirring frequently until boiling.
  12. Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes.
  13. Ready now for bottling.


  14. Fill each jar to 1″ below the top, stirring with each ladle removed to ensure the even distribution of the “goodies”, and cap immediately.
  15. Once the lids “pop”, the jars are sealed.
  16. Check the bands for tightness and allow them to cool completely before storing.
  17. Note that the tomatoes are neither peeled nor seeded, hence the tremendous flavor achieved and the added benefit of the fiber is not to be discounted.
