Making your own fresh tomato sauce takes quite a bit of prep work, but I promise it is well worth the effort. The flavor from homemade tomato sauce far exceeds any canned sauce you can find at the store
· 1 tbsp of olive oil
· 30 Italian tomatoes
· 4 garlic cloves (minced)
· 1 onion
· ¼ cup of red wine (optional)
· 1 tbsp of sugar
· salt and pepper to taste
1 Prepare a large bowl of ice water. Immerse whole tomatoes in boiling water until the skin begins to peel, about 8 minutes.
2 Remove with a spoon and place in an ice bath. Let sit until cool enough to handle, then remove skin.
3 In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the onion in the oil until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic at the last minute so it doesn't burn
4 Pour in the tomatoes. Stir in the basil, wine, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to low, simmer for 2 hours.
5 At the end you can use the hand mixer to make it smoother as you want
