This recipe covers the "Basic Tomato Product" that I can use as a base for any culinary flavor... Italian, Mexican, Hungarian, anything! And the best thing is it will last in the canning jars without refrigeration until your next year's harvest!

About 5 -6 pounds of tomatoes
4 onion
2 whole garlic (peeled)
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

What to do

  • Combine tomatoes, onion, and garlic in a roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast at 425 F until crispy on top.
  • Puree in a blender until smooth. You will need to puree this amount in several batches.
  • Use sterile canning method to store. (See how to can tomatoes.)
