Jon’s easy fresh tomato sauce

Sauce using fresh tomatoes from the garden

My son Jon planted a few tomatoes outside his office, and it’s turned into quite the crop. The other day he made sauce using the fresh tomatoes from the garden, and it was a big hit. Here is Jon’s easy fresh tomato sauce recipe:


3,4,5 fresh large sized tomatoes from your garden  – depending on how much sauce you want. Feel free to mix plum tomatoes and regular ones. Riper is better

Chopped onion, chopped green, red and or italian pepper, crushed garlic

olive oil, salt and pepper, italian seasoning

brown sugar

Peel and seed tomatoes and put aside

Heat some olive oil in a deep pot. When it gets war, add onion and peppers (chopped pretty fine). Salt them a little and cook on medium until they soften. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or so. Add the tomatoes  and utilian seasoning and cook on low for as long as you have – the sauce is great at whatever stage of cooked. Throw in some brown sugar (not much…to taste) and season as you like.
