Homemade Italian Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Ingredients ♥

    4 large jars 16 ounce canned Tomatoes
    olive oil
    1 onion, quartered
    3 garlic cloves, peeled left whole
    fresh herb such as fresh Italian parsley or fresh basil
    sea salt
    black pepper

Directions ♥

    Squeeze all the juice out of the tomatoes. Either using a mesh collander or large food mill, separate the puree from the pulp and seeds. Set aside.
    Put enough olive oil in pan to cover the surface. Add in onion, garlic, saute for 2-3 minutes. Remove garlic.
    Add in tomato puree, and one can of water if it’s extra thick. Some tomatoes are more watery. Skip the water if you think it’s too liquidy.
    Cook on low heat, semi-covered with lid, for two hours, stirring every twenty minutes. Adjust cooking time. If sauce thickens quickly, cut cooking time. Take out the onion and any herbs before serving. 

If youwant to preserve and can your sauce...
Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice to each of nine hot 1-qt. jars. Ladle hot mixture into jars, leaving 1/2-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 40 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
Attach the jars with a recipe card and these cut tomato labels and there you have a supercute gift! ♥
