I'm wanting to jar and freeze tomato sauce. Does anyone have a recipe that they have used and love?

It depends on what you want to do with tomatoes. For pizza I do not cook tomato sauce at all. I just use Compliments canned whole plum tomatoes (in health section and as far the taste is concerned not too far from the real San Marzano tomatoes, dice, squash with hands, let drain for couple hours, add salt/pepper/oregano/olive oil and done ) The only tomato sauce I freeze is our tomato and tuna pasta sauce (saute onions on some olive oil, when soft, drop in diced tomatoes, again, canned Compliments organic tomatoes , cook until tomatoes are soft, add can of flaked tuna, add salt/pepper/oregano/thyme/basil to taste, cook a bit more until it all mixes up well, decorate with parley and fresh basil, and that is about it).

One important thing when cooking with tomatoes - never use mechanic or electric food processor. At most just use the knife and potato masher. It you find yourself adding sugar in tomato sauce that is probably because you blended seeds and let all of the bitterness from them into the sauce. That is also the reason to buy whole canned tomatoes over diced ones - dicing them with knife breaks less seeds than the machine process does.

Thanks sasha. Not a fan of fish - but appreciate the tip regarding food processors. (that's exactly what I thought about using.)

I'd love to take a huge load of garden tomatoes and make some sort of sauce to freeze and use during the winter.
