“With an overload of garden fresh tomatoes I wanted to make a homemade tomato sauce and then this recipe was sent from another web site and it sounds like just what I was wanting. Love the ease of crock pot cooking! Some reviews that came with it suggested to increase the cayenne pepper but as with all spices I think that would be a matter of taste. I ended up putting the finished sauce in zip lock freezer bags in 1 cup quantity and freezing and this worked well. Now I always have fresh tomato sauce on hand when needed”
