The first step in making homemade spaghetti sauce is processing the fresh tomatoes into tomato puree.

Prepare Tomatoes


Wash the tomatoes  and remove any bad spots. If your processing a larger variety of tomatoes you may need to half them so that they will fit down the hopper.



Fill the hopper about half full with tomatoes and start cranking. When your puree bowl is full transfer it to the stove or crockpot and begins reducing it down.

Heat tomato puree on low-medium heat until it has reduced by about one-third.



Add the spices and bring the sauce to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Boil until the sauce has reduced by half of its original volume for a thicker sauce.


Check that each jar has been sealed after 24 hours. Label jars and store in a cool dark place and for best quality use within 12 months.
