Tales from our Garden: Fresh Tomato Sauce

Our garden definitely has no lack of tomatoes and because we are only two people I needed a way to use up a bunch before they all went bad so last week I decided to whip up some delicious fresh tomato sauce and finished it off with some fresh garden picked basil. I must say it was one of the best tomato sauces I have ever eaten.

Since making this batch a week a go we now have a fresh batch of picked tomatoes, two HUGE bowl fulls to be exact. This weekend I am going to make a super large batch of this sauce and freeze it in individual portions that way we can enjoy our fresh garden tomato sauce all year long.

Fresh Tomato Sauce
Makes about 2 cups of sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 10 medium sized plum tomatoes, peeled (see how here) and chopped 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh torn basil 
  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the oil, onions and garlic and saute until softened and lightly golden.
  2. Add in the tomatoes, lower the heat and let simmer for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally until you have a nice thick tomato sauce
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste and finish with a good sprinkling of fresh torn basil.
