Home Made Tomato Sauce

So I'm saving the last of the garden tomatoes from frost. They CAN'T go to waste. That would be a sin - truly. Not enough to bottle, not enough for juice, so I thought I'd experiment. As is often the case, there is no recipe here BUT...
  • Washed tomatoes
  • Pureed them in food processor
  • Melted about 1/4 cup butter
  • Added tomato puree
  • Sprinkled about 1/4/ - 13 cup sugar over top
  • Sprinkled with sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Simmered until nice and thick . . . 1-2 hours
  • Added just a touch of Italian Seasoning
  • Placed in freezer Jars
LICKED the pan clean. . . then the measuring cups, then the spoons. Yes sir. I have rarely had anything quite so amazing. I can't wait to use the sauce in pizza or lasagna or soup or maybe I'll sit down with a bag and a spoon and eat the whole thing. Gotta try it!
