Ok so this is an easy sauce to use and easily makes enough for a few weeks....
Turn a large burner or element to med - high...
place a large pot on the stove, i ussually use a big one, easy to work with more room... then add the oil to heat.
Begin my dicing, grating and chopping the first 3 ingredients listed, once ready add the onion to the pot and cook until translucent (5-10 mins)
Add carrot and celery and cook until veggies are lighter in color and softend.
Then add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a simmer, let it go for 1 or 2 hours
When finished use a hand blender to complete sauce, let cool and freeze.
If no hand blender, let the sauce cool, add very small batches, puree
Add salt to taste, use right away or freeze for later use.
***Be careful to watch the heat, this sauce can start to burn on the bottom of the pot, once the sauce comes to a simmer, let it cook gently at medium heat. Stir sauce every 15 - 20 mins if possible. If you are planning to cook the sauce down sor the full 2 hours, lower heat.
***As a note, sometimes tomato sauces can become bitter, tart or overly acidic. This is normal and may even happen batch to batch. This is an inheret condition from the tomatoes, the acidity and sugar content of the tomatoes. Even the cooking time may effect it. In industry adding a cup of port, or simply a few tablespoons of sugar helps.
You buy it all the time, one meal a week? two?
