Abstract: It's fall and it's a good time to try to make some fresh tomato sauce.


It's Friday. After work, I went directly to farmer's market and bought 12 big jars and 4 small basket of tomatoes.

It's the end of the day and the tomatoes are on sale. It's only 1 dollar per basket. 4 baskets is about 30 pounds.

They are leftover, and so they are not very good tomatoes. But it's O.K. for me.

It's fall and it's a good time to try to make some fresh tomato sauce. 


1. Wash all tomatoes thoroughly (with soap if needed);

2. Peel off the skin (with skin peeler or hot and then cold water);

3. Grind the tomato in a grinder;

4. Put grinded tomatoes into a big pot, heat to boil and then simmer for 30 minutes;

5. Add sea salt (with or without sugar and with or without lemon juice);

6. Store tomato sauce to the big jars;

7. Cap the jars and put them in boiling water for about 15 more minutes.

All materials cost about 16 dollars. 

The whole process takes about 3.5 hours. 

Have to make them one pot first and then another. 

There are too many tomatoes. 

9 big jars of tomato sauce are made. It's first time to make tomato sauce. Cool!


These tomatoes are probably too juicy for tomato sauce.

May try Roma tomato next time.

People told me the seed inside the sauce will rot the sauce.

Not sure how long these can be stored.
