“If you are blessed with a surplus of tomatoes, this easy tomato sauce packs the essence of fresh tomato in a thick smoky flavored sauce. I shared this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens with a wonderful friend who had a never ending tomato crop.”

Directions

  1. Core tomatoes and cut in half - squeeze out and discard seeds. Cut tomatoes in chunks. One-third at a time, place tomato chunks in food processor bowl or blender container. Process with several on/off turns; tomatoes should remain chunky. Transfer to medium bowl. You should have about 3 1/4 cups tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender but not brown (3 minutes). Stir in garlic and chile powder; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer gently; uncovered, about 15 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Stir in basil and salt; heat through. Makes 3 cups.
  3. Hint: You can double the recipe and make several batches of sauce to store. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week, or freeze up to 3 months. You can put the sauce in a jelly jar, add a label with storage directions and give as a gift from your kitchen. Your friends will thank you.
