Hey everyone! Mackenzie here! Finding ways to use up summer produce can be a challenge. The window for ripe fruits and veggies is so short! Making tomato sauce is the absolute BEST way to use up all those ripe garden tomatoes in your garden or at the farmer’s market!
My mom and I will make upwards of 7-8 of these batches and freeze them to use throughout the fall and winter. There are a lot of different methods online for homemade tomato sauce that involve peeling tomatoes, but after trial and error, we found it wasn’t worth the fuss! It tastes just as delicious keeping the skin on and it’s SO much easier!
A few people asked if we can the tomatoes, but we find freezing in an airtight container to be the best and easiest storage method. I’ll often use leftover small and large yogurt containers to store the sauce in as they’re the perfect size! Make sure you fill the sauce to the top of the container to avoid freezer burn.
I recommend serving this sauce straight up with your favourite long pasta. Its flavours are SO vibrant and fresh that you don’t need to add anything else to complete this meal. It’s also surprisingly creamy and bursting with flavour. It’s also divine as a base for your pizza! Rest assured you won’t want to buy store-bought tomato sauce again![amd-zlrecipe-recipe:4]
