Tomato Sauce – Easy Farm Fresh to Table Recipe


Farm to Table

Today more and more people are maintaining gardens in their homes. The summer months provide us with the opportunity to grow tomatoes, basil, garlic, onions, and other varieties of herbs and vegetables. This past summer our garden grew an abundance of tomatoes and basil. We were able to jar tomato sauce for the winter months ahead.

Making the Home Made Tomato Sauce

Making your basic tomato sauce does not need to be labor-intensive. If you’ve never made tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes before, this is a good place to start. The amount isn’t overwhelming, but you’ll make enough for a nice meal. You can take your small harvest and freeze the whole batch if you don’t feel like storing it in jars.

The beauty of making your own sauce is that your whole house fills with the fragrant aromas of fresh herbs and vegetables. By following our simple instructions, you will see that this sauce is better than anything that comes in a jar at the store.

Uses for your Fresh Tomato Sauce

This basic farm-to-table tomato sauce can be used in a variety of ways. Feel free to use it in our MyPrepTable Vodka Sauce. You can use it to make MyPrepTable’s Tomato Bisque Soup. You can use it to spoon onto a pizza dough to make a Margherita Pizza with fresh basil. Interested in the best seafood dish. Try making MyPrepTable’s Seafood Diablo. This sauce is versatile. Do not be afraid to experiment with your flavors.
