Preparation

Step 1

Wash and cut the tomatoes (1/2 or 1/4) and put in large stockpot

Add the ingredients and mix with wooden spoon.
Then, using a potato masher, mash the tomatoes a bit to help break apart the pieces and allow the flavors to develop. Bring the stockpot to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, cooking for at least 2 hours until nice and deep red color with some of the liquid reduced.

Once ready, remove the bay leaves run through a food mill using the largest disk. This will remove the skins but leave a nice thick sauce.

Fill sterilized pint or quart jars,leaving 1/4 inch head space. Seal and process in water bath for 30 minutes.
