Homemade Tomato Sauce Recipe


Homemade Tomato Sauce Recipe


  • 6-7 pounds of fresh, ripe tomatoes (roma, early girl, beefsteak etc.)
  • 1-2 Tbsp sugar, optional
  • 1/2 tsp salt, optional


  1. Remove stems of tomatoes. Place 4-5 tomatoes at a time into a pan of boiling water for about 30 seconds until the skins begin to crack.
  2. Remove tomatoes from pan and place them into a bowl of ice water.
  3. After they have cooled for a few seconds remove the skin from the tomato.
  4. Place tomatoes into a high power blender (1/2 at a time) and blend until desired smoothness.
  5. If you’d like a chunkier sauce, just dice tomatoes before cooking.
  6. Place tomatoes puree or chunks into a pan and heat on the stove. Cook at medium heat, at a low simmer until desired thickness is achieved.
  7. 6-7 pounds will yield approx. 6-7 cups of sauce. How long your simmer the sauce for will affect the yield.
