Servings 1 Quart


  • 4-5 lbs Fresh tomatoes (any variety)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp salt (more or less depending on taste)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (more or less depending on taste
  • Fresh herbs (chopped) quantity depends on taste


  • Cut smaller tomatoes in half and quarter large ones.
  • Working in groups, add tomatoes to a food processor and mix until roughly chopped. I like a chunky sauce, but if you prefer a smooth one you can process the tomatoes longer.
    Use a strainer to drain some of the liquid.
  • Add the tomatoes to a large pan or stockpot. Season with garlic, salt, and herbs. Turn to medium/high heat and wait for the tomaotes to boil. Once they boil, reduce to a simmer, stirring occassionly.
  • The longer you cook the sauce, the more the tomatoes will reduce and the thicker it will become. I cooked mind for 60 minutes and it reduced by approximately 1/3. I recommend cooking the sauce between 45 and 90 minutes.
  • Once finished, you can store the sauce in the refridgerator for 7 days or freeze it for up to 3 months. Another option is to can it.
