Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

I had quite an experience making homemade spaghetti sauce. It is A LOT of work. But if you have the time and patience- it’s worth it when the work is done.

Here are some pictures of the spaghetti sauce making process.

Put the tomatoes in boiling water for about 1 minute.82310 002

Transfer the tomatoes into cool water.

This makes it very easy to remove the skins.

I forgot to take a picture of all of the veggies in this recipe, but there are carrots and peppers in this pot. Boil it all up.

After a few hours- let it cool and then put it into containers or can it.

This has an excellent flavor but I think next time I’ll let it thicken up a little more!
