Homemade Tomato Sauce

IMG_1516

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs tomatoes, washed
  • 2 cloves garlic (I used about 5…. I love garlic)
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 3 basil leaves (I used fresh from my garden, or you could do 1.2 tsp dried)
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

Put all ingredients in crockpot (the tomatoes can go in whole!) Cook on low for about 6 hours, stirring occasionally. Once the tomatoes have broken down. Put the tomatoes and juice in a food processor and blend until smooth (or whichever consistency you want.)

Now, you could put it back in the crockpot and cook uncovered until it reaches the desired consistency. I put it on the stove to it would boil off faster. either way, let it cook until it has reached the consistency you would like for your sauce!
