I get amazing results with using chanterelle mushrooms and a little bit of chicken stock. But fresh tomatoes, deskinned and deseeded, are the key. And I also like carrots in my sauce. Happy cooking!

Re: So I've got this huge garden now I need a recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce to can HELP!
Start with the holy trinity of cooking. Cut onion, carrot and celery very fine.

Saute (lightly brown) in some olive oil and butter. Butter flavors the oil, oil keeps butter from burning.

Chop tomatoes pretty fine or if you have a blender then grind them fine. Don't add yet.

Add sliced mushrooms and all kinds of peppers sliced- but not until 1st veggies are lightly browned. Saute some more until veggies are softened.

Add tomatoes. and add sugar, about a quarter cup for a large pot, maybe more later. The sugar is a contrast to the acidity of the tomatoes.

Add lots of oregano.

You can add basil too, but I'd save the leaves for salad, pizza etc.

Add a bit of salt and pepper, and add some vinegar, a few table spoons - balsamic if you have it.

Add a lot of garlic cloves, chopped fine. Add it once you add the tomatoes. Don't fry it cause you can burn it easily and it doesn't taste nice then.

If you find it watery, then you can thicken it naturally with okra, or finely grate more carrot and celery and add. These will thicken it up.

And taste your sauce as you go. Your tongue is the best judge of what is needed and when.

If the sauce is chunky, you could use one of those hand held blenders and blend it in the pot. These are cheap and very handy - under $10.

This is a pretty good recipe, in all the method of achieving a decent sauce is there. But vegetarian sauce is diffucult to make. Beef stock and chicken stock are pivotal in adding the right saltiness in some of the better marinara I have had. Try adding some Kitchen bouquet to this recipe above as well as a healthy amount of kosher salt.

Tomato and Basil Sauce - Salsa Di Pomodoro E Basilico

Ingredients

* 5 lbs ripe plum tomatoes, with their liquid
* 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* 2/3 cup onion, diced
* 3 garlic cloves, minced
* 1 1/2 cups dry red wine
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1 tablespoon fine sea salt, to taste
* fresh ground black pepper, to taste
* 6-8 leaves fresh basil
Fresh tomatoes, core them, cut them into coarse chunks, and puree them in a food processor or blender,until smooth. Set aside.

2 Heat the olive oil in a large pot, and cook the onion over a medium heat, stirring, until soft.
3 Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until it becomes soft. Do not let the garlic brown, or an acid taste will be imparted in the sauce.

4 Add the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat to low, and simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes.

Re: So I've got this huge garden now I need a recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce to can HELP!
Can / Jar some of your extra tomato's as Stewed Tomato.


What you do is blanch the tomato in boiling water till the skin is ready to peel off. It only takes a few seconds in the boiling water.


Then you peel the hot tomato and get rid of the skins. The tomato is then cut in quarters.


You stew the quartered tomato with some onion and celery. not alot you are just making stewed tomato.


When the stewed stuff is cooked down you have to skim off the foam that rises to the top. A few hours later and your stewed tomato is ready.


Now you have to Jar them in mason jars.


Get a pot of boiling hot water on the stove.

Put a mason jar in the sink and run hot water in it. Then dump the water out and put the jar in the hot boiling water in the stove.

Add a 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the jar.


Then fill it with stewed tomato.


Take the lid and the ring for the mason jar. Heat up the rubber seal on the lid in the water.

Put it on the jar and screw on lid.

Set it aside to cool down.


You will know it sealed properly when the top of the lid Pops.

The seal will be complete when it center of the lid is sucked in.


Store your stewed tomato in the basement.


Use it to make Spaghetti, or chili, ect...

Re: So I've got this huge garden now I need a recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce to can HELP!
We have these jarred tomato stored away in the basement.

All my life we have been using them instead of canned store bought because the quality is way better.

Have you noticed canned tomato is Rubbery ?

And it takes hours and hours to cook down.


Not with the Homemade stewed tomato.

If iam making chili I will take 2 quart jars of it and 1lb of meat, 3 cans of beans, some onion and then spice it up.

Let it simmer for a bit till its the thicknes you like.


You can add basil and garlic to the stewed tomato for a nice spaghetti / Italian sauce.


Simmer some down and add garlic oregeno and basil for pizza sauce.


You can also turn some of you tomato in to Salsa.


Grow some Jalapeno for that.

You should have enough acid in the tomatoes to not need any special canning recipe, so long as you don't add sugar or doing anything weird to your sauces.

If you add meat to the sauce, you have to follow the procedures for meat canning with a pressure cooker.

I think you can find recipes and instructions for soup and sauce canning on the USDA website.

Ya stick with the base of stewed tomato and you can turn it into anything you want later.

Re: So I've got this huge garden now I need a recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce to can HELP!
My two cents worth:

1. Even if you are using homegrown tomatoes, add canned tomato paste to your sauce. Here is how you use tomato paste in spaghetti sauce -- heat a large fry pan, add a few teaspoons of olive oil, add a can of tomato paste and stir it as it browns,pretty high flame, keep stirring and smashing it out...it should get very heated up *almost* to the point of burning it. This brings out a super wonderful flavor that cannot be duplicated in any other way.

Whenever you add your tomatoes, first squeeze out the seeds and runny watery juice.

Add your other spices, salt, etc. from whatever recipe (see below for link), be sure to cook long and slow, good Italian cooks simmer their sauce for many hours for all the flavors to come out of the herbs.

2. A trick I learned from an Italian (and he was a GREAT cook), this is priceless, is to add a pinch of freshly ground fennel seed to spaghetti sauce...it gives just the right 'certain something' that most people never figure out what that flavor is, but it screams out "AUTHENTIC ITALIAN SPAGHETTI" -- shhh, don't tell everyone, lol! You have to start with the whole seeds and grind them with a mortar and pestle, about 3/4 tsp. for enough sauce for four people.

I found this recipe on google, sounds pretty good to me:

 Quoting: The Chef


Well, here's my main recipe. Sorry, it's meat though...

Thread: How to make a da gravy

A good pointer though. Make sure you skin your peppers and tomatos first.

Since you want vegetarian, I say just throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and let it simmer down until it's nice and thick. Don't forget garlic, onion, black pepper, maybe a little crushed red pepper.

Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"

Re: So I've got this huge garden now I need a recipe for homemade spaghetti sauce to can HELP!
Basic start up for Marinara sauce or any type of pasta sauce.

Take a big pot. Throw down a bunch of oil. Let it heat up some. Take a bunch of Onions and dice them up as well as some minced garlic. Then sautée them up in the pot until both are translucent. Make sure the heat is not full blast, you will burn the garlic easily. Pretty much caramelizing the onions and garlic.

Take Tomato Paste and Tomato Chunks and add them to the onions.

As far as spices, that is up to you. General Basil, Oregano ect... Always Salt & Pepper.

To give the sauce some extra flavor and sweetness. Add some heavy cream. Pretty much making a pink sauce and sticks more to the pasta. Good for any pasta. Combine the sauce and pasta, shake it up in a closed pot.

The internet. There are recipes all over if you look. There are many methods for making sauces.

One Alfredo sauce.
Take a sautée pan, a little oil and butter. Once hot enough add garlic & onions. Test with a piece of garlic. Once caramelized, add spinach leaf, already cooked diced chicken and a little more butter to help keep from sticking as well as help in general. Letting the chicken 'somewhat' burn to the pan is ok. Fond: refers to the browned and caramelized bits of meat stuck to the bottom of a skillet after cooking a piece. Gives flavor. Once the the spinach is cooked, add heavy cream, just a little to cover the bottom of the pan. A pinch of chicken stock. No salt as the stock is very salty. But can always to taste. And any other spices. Let it reduce some on low heat. The cream will thicken up. You can always add a little butter and stir. You will see it thicken up. Once at a proper consistency add pasta and toss.

Im better at showing then explaining. I have what cooks call 'the eye'. I would have to be there to grab proper measurements. Meaning I would grab, then you measured for notes. lol.

Cooking is easy. Just follow the recipes! Don't go... it might be better if I add this! Or take out this! Its science! Wrong or missing ingredients will kill it. Unless you know how certain foods react to one another. Especially with Sauces and desserts. Always properly measure. Always sift dry goods. Always take a knife to flatten that measuring cup or spoon.

I love cooking.
My specialty is pastry's.

Oh no, never use paste like that. All that does it speed up the cooking process. But they use the worst tomatos from the crop to make tomato paste.

Don't insult the good fresh tomatos with that stuff. Just take the time to simmer down the sauce until you have the right thickness.
