Recipe | Freezer Friendly Tomato Sauce

It’s that time of year. Tomato time of year! We planted 5 beautiful plants this year, and are in the midst of our wonderful harvest. I wish I could bottle these tomatoes up and save them for the rest of the year. Oh wait, I can, and that’s just what I’m sharing today: a recipe for freezer-friendly tomato sauce!

My dear friend (and assistant/writer…if you receive my newsletter, you’ve read her beautiful writing) Meghan is sharing her go-to SIMPLE recipe for freezer-friendly tomato sauce. I made a batch, and will make a few more before the end of the season. My goal is to freeze 12 quarts of sauce for use over the winter months when I’m just craving a garden fresh tomato.

Freezer-Friendly Tomato Sauce

Makes about 1 quart; double or triple for a greater freezer stash!

Because this tomato sauce is plain,  you can use it in a variety of recipes, just as you would canned diced or crushed tomatoes.  It’s rustic and all-purpose, and I use it in chili, curries, and pasta sauces all year round. It is a great way to use up all of those ripe tomatoes sitting on your counter, and doesn’t require them to be free of imperfections!  Or if you happen to score a great deal on bulk  tomatoes at your farmer’s  market this summer, you now have an easy, fuss-free way of preserving them. 

Ingredients

  • 8-10 medium sized tomatoes (ripe and imperfect work best)
  • kosher salt (start with 1 tsp and add more to taste)

Supplies

Directions

  • Dice tomatoes, cutting out core and any imperfections. 
  • Place tomatoes and juices in pot and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Bring to boil, then cover partially and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Uncover and let simmer 1 more hour, or until some liquid has evaporated and tomatoes have reduced by half. 
  • Let cool, then transfer to freezer-friendly containers for later use.

That’s it! A simple, uncomplicated way to preserve this season’s best! ENJOY!
