How many people would enjoy eating pasta with real homemade sauce, made naturally with no preservatives. Did you know that the canned sauces that you buy from the stores are more expensive and not as healthy for you as opposed to a homemade sauce that you can make yourself. I personally know several families that make their own homemade sauce from scratch. I even know an owner of a pizzeria who makes his own homemade sauce to reduce his costs and to add quality to the tastes of his foods. I learned how to make homemade sauce from my parents. The effectiveness of making a good homemade sauce depends on two actors.
Having the right equipment and ingredients and making sure you follow each step carefully. First I will tell you how to prepare the tomatoes for the sauce. Then I will demonstrate while telling you how to make your own homemade sauce. In order to make your sauce come out and taste the way it should one must follow these steps correctly. In the preparation stage you should make sure to have fresh ripe tomatoes,preferably Plum Tomatoes because they have less water in them. My parents actually grow the tomatoes themselves in their garden but you can purchase these same omatoes at your local grocery store.
In preparing your tomatoes you should rinse them off whith cold water. Then you must cut off the stems and any bad parts of the tomatoes. Next you cut the tomatoes into chunks and put the into a big pot to cook until the tomatoes become soft. Once your tomatoes have become soft they must be ran through a strainer which removes the seeds and skin from the tomatoes. At this point the tomatoes become a liquified sauce. Next you boil the liquified sauce for another thirty minutes,and have clean jars with their tops nearby.
You should also have fresh leaves of bazel ready to add to the sauce. Now you are ready to scoop up the sauce and begin filling up the jars. When the jars are filled up about a half an inch from the top you add a teaspoon of salt and a leaf of basil to add flavor. You are now ready to apply the lids to the jars and tighten them well and turn each jar upside down until each one is sealed tightly. This prevents spoiling of each jar. Now that you know how to prepare your tomatoes for the sauce,you are ready to learn how to make your own homemade sauce.
The purpose of this first step is to prepare your tomatoes. Now I will start telling you how to make your homemade sauce. Let me begin by demonstrating the final steps. You cut pieces of onions and garlic and add them into a pot with pure olive oil and saute until the onions and garlic become a light brown color. Now we are ready to add the tomato sauce that I have already prepared into the pot. Next let the sauce simmer for about forty minutes on a low flame. At this point the sauce is ready to put on top of any type of pasta of your choice.
