You can Make Tomato Sauce in Home

Here’s what you need to prepare your organic tomato sauce:

  • tomato strainer or food mill;
  • big pots with lids;
  • wooden spoon;
  • glass jars;
  • clean cotton cloths;
  • organic tomatoes and basil.

Now, let’s have a look at the sauce preparation.

Take the San Marzano tomatoes, wash them thoroughly and cut them, removing only the dented parts. Then, place the tomatoes in various pots and make sure that they aren’t too full, otherwise you won’t be able to properly mix them.

Put the pot on the stove and cover it with a lid: let it cook over low heat. Stir the tomatoes frequently and lower the heat when they begin to simmer. You have to cook the tomatoes until their consistency will be more liquid.

Remember that the sauce shouldn’t be too thick, because when you reuse it you will still have to cook it for a few minutes. Then, seep the tomatoes in the tomato strainer or in the food mill: this way you will remove the seeds and the tomatoes’ skin, obtaining a smooth and rich tomato puree.

To sterilize the glass jars, you have to boil them in a clean pot full of water for at least 30 minutes. You should put a cotton cloth into the pot before boiling it in order to avoid breakage and then you should fill in the glass jars with the cloths.

Leave them cool until you can handle them. Then, put a few fresh basil leaves inside the jars and pour the tomato sauce in the jars. Close the jars when the tomato puree is still warm, leaving a space of one centimetre.

Put the jars upside down in a large pot full of water and boil it for 30 minutes. It is absolutely necessary to ensure sterilization and vacuum-sealed jars.
