Tomato Sauce Recipe for a Water Bath Canning
Wondering what to do with all those beautifully red tomatoes coming out of your backyard garden? Well, how about making a very versatile tomato sauce. A sauce that you can safely can and keep on your shelf until you need it.
I personally only can plain tomato sauce without all the herbs and spices. The spices that you can find in your canned spaghetti sauces, pizza sauces, or chili sauces. I like to be able to use my tomato sauce for any recipe I have like my family favorite chili’s, spaghetti sauce for spaghetti or lasagna, tomato soups, and amazing toppings for meatloaves.
When you scroll down you will notice that this recipe has no amounts listed for the ingredients and there is a good reason for that. I find that the easiest way to preserve my tomato harvest is to can them as the fruit is picked. Therefore, I may can a small amount of mason jars several times in the season. I find this helps keep all my fruit and vegetables fresher.
