Tomato Preserving

I chose to do tomatoes and make them into a tomato sauce using the method preserving. I used Roma tomatoes.

First what you want to do is wash all the tomatoes and cut the bottom of a Roma tomato and put them all in a pot. I put them in whole but you are also able to cut them into chunks or pieces depending on how you like it. Once that’s done, you boil them.

Once they are done boiling, You then have to get a masher and put in the tomatoes and that will get out the juice and from that stage you can get jars to put the sauce in them and put a lid on them. You don’t have to do this step but i did it. You put a the jar into a pot and boil it for 5-10 minutes.

Your final product should look like this: tomato sauce

I was successful because I’m Italian and in my family we have sauce every year so for the last couple years now I’ve been helping out my grandparents with it!
