Fresh Spaghetti Sauce

Today I worked on some homemade spaghetti sauce.  I had all these beautiful tomatoes from my grandmother's garden that needed to put to good use before going bad.  We all love tomato sandwiches in my house but we couldn't eat them fast enough.  I also ended up finishing off all the basil on my plant.  I used a lot more than what is shown in the first picture.  I got 3 good bags of spaghetti sauce.

First I blanched and peeled all the tomatoes.  I chose to use a "raw" recipe. 

Then I seeded all the tomatoes (Shannon be glad you weren't over today :)

The juice from the tomatoes to put back in the blender

The first batch was a little more runny than we like, so I cut way back on adding the tomato juice back in the next two times.


The sauce tasted really good.  When I actually use it I will add more goodies too it :)
