Tomato Sauce

Each year, my Dad has one of the best gardens around. Last summer, his tomato crop was hit with the blight, so sauce making was not an option. This year, there are almost too many tomatoes! So, I set out to put up 2 baskets of Romas in two nights. I accomplished this goal, and the sauce looks wonderful. Luckily, I had my friend, the Squeezo in the kitchen to help!

I ended up with 15 quarts of sauce, and 4 quarts of roasted tomatoes. I thought I could turn those into sauce at a later date. I chose to freeze everything because I do not have a pressure cooker. I find that the sauce keeps just fine.
