We are swimming in tomatoes. Some from our CSA and some from our own garden. I am determined to use every single one. There is some canning in our future. I just discovered homemade pizza sauce.
2lbs chopped fresh tomatoes
4 cloves of mashed garlic cooked in olive oil
tablespoon of sugar (or honey!)
1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Cook it until it boils, then let it simmer for an hour and a half. Use a stick blender to puree it.
We used the homemade pizza sauce on our breaded eggplant and on a pizza. I don't know why I haven't made it before. It's a great way to use tomatoes and will can well!
