From-scratch tomato sauce is an absolute necessity in my home. It’s great to have tomato sauce on hand when making pasta dishes, soups, or chilis. And the best thing about this recipe is that you know exactly where every ingredient came from.
This time of year always seems like it’s in the midst of an identity crisis--it's 80 then 50, strawberries are still at the market right next to winter squash, apples, and pears. This tomato jam walks the line between seasons perfectly.
I may have gone over the edge with this whole tomato thing. I love all things tomato. But tomato wine? Just thinking of the possibilities! If you've canned or fermented things, home winemaking is totally within your reach.
