I Got Sauced!!!


Ready for the oven!

I bought 25+ lbs of tomatoes for $15.00 in Maine, aren't they beautiful!
No peeling!  I quartered them, tossed on some garlic cloves, drizzled some 
olive oil, and roasted them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes!


I was immersed in my job!
I used my immersion blender to make my sauce. 


Wow, 10 jars!
Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the bottom of each jar.
Wipe the rims, inside and outside.


Everyone in the pot!

Add the tops after you've softened them in warm water 
then secure with the band ~ hand tight.
Process for 45 minutes when the water returns to a boil.


Can't wait to do another 10 jars!

I'm sending a HUGE thank you to Susan at
  From Beyond My Kitchen Window for this recipe! 
It's a keeper, it's even easier than the one I used last year, 
which I thought was great!

Thank you for following my blog, I truly appreciate your friendship.

  1. Now that doesn't sound half bad! I wonder if I could find that many tomatoes for sale.

  2. Tomorrow is our last (sob) farmers' market for the season. I've reserved ten pounds of Roma tomatoes. Maybe I should have asked for more?

  5. Such dedication! I know I should do it but I never seem to get around to it! This recipe sounds so simple I bet the taste is stunning. Roasting the toms is an excellent way to bring out their flavour. Can't wait to receive the one youre sending me!

  6. The jars look great. The recipe is simple and I think highlights all the ingredients in the sauce. Didn't the house smell great while the tomatoes were roasting?

  9. Did you peel the tomatoes first? They are beautiful and have never roasted prior to canning...bet that really makes the flavor intense.

  11. Nicely done! We have access to an organic food co op that has had the most beautiful tomatoes this year. I typically don't make my own sauce :) but your recipe is tempting me!! Your home must have smelled wonderful as this sauce simmered on the stove.

    Have a nice weekend!

  16. I have always wanted to try this. I cook a lot of Italian recipes so it is much easier to have the sauce made ahead of time. I love this. Thank you for sharing.
    Much love,

  18. I love being able to preserve our own food and I relly like your using the immersion blender rather than peeling - that is one handy device.

  19. Yum! Satisfying getting all that done and in the storehouse, right?
