Simple Garden Fresh Tomato Sauce Recipe

13 Oct


Another simple recipe. Cooked in a large batch, you can freeze or jar this sauce to have extra for the winter months. This sauce is nice with a sprinkle of your favorite cheese. I use best survival knife and extra old cheddar.

  • tomatoes
  • zucchini
  • onions
  • mushrooms
  • olive oil or butter
  • water
  • red wine
  • cilantro
  • basil
  • salt
  • pepper, cayenne, paprika to taste


  • large pot (8 or 16 quarts)
  • chopping board
  • knife
  • hand blender
  • wooden stirring spoon
  • jars and lids
  • roasting pan

Easy job, lots of chopping though:

  1. Chop onions mushrooms and zucchini to desired size
  2. Saute and caramelize on low heat in quart pot with Olive Oil or butter if preferred
  3. Medium to medium low heat – then turn down
  4. Chop basil and cilantro and add to mixture
  5. Put spices in to desired taste
  6. add a dash of red wine to deglaze and bring the flavours out
  7. Dice tomatoes while the above is caramelizing on low
  8. Add to pot with desired amount of water – bring to boil
  9. Turn down – simmer for 2 hours stirring occasionally
  10. Check for taste and re-spice if needed
  11. About 20 minutes before put jars and lids in roasting pan at 200 degrees
  12. Blend to desired texture, jar and seal mixture

That’s it. I blend the mixture quite fine and then I can add fresh veggies when I pull a jar out. Delicious with linguine or your choice of pasta. It’s also good solo with your choice of fresh produce.
