Spaghetti Sauce for Canning {Finished Friday #51} Come and link up your projects, too!

Link up your finished projects at the bottom of this post.

I know you're probably getting tired of hearing about tomatoes, right?

But, then again, just think how I feel.

This week we finally got into canning tomato sauce. We've used this sauce recipe for a few years and we're very pleased with the simplicity and taste.

Spaghetti Sauce for Canning
adapted from this recipe at

yield: approximately 9 pints

1/4 bushel tomatoes, cored, blanched, & peeled, approximately 32 cups (we use a mixture of Roma and what ever other red tomatoes Tim decides to plant)
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbsp dried parsley
2 Tbsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp dried basil
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp salt
6 Tbsp sugar
24 oz. tomato paste

In an 8-Quart or larger pot, cook the onion and pepper in the oil over medium heat until soft. Add tomatoes and cook until very soft. (As you can see this recipe just barely fits in an 8-Quart pot.)

Add the tomato paste and mash until desired consistency. We use our immersion hand blender to make this really quick and easy.

Add seasonings and cook down until thick. We usually cook at a simmer for 8-10 hours. Process in a hot water bath for 50 minutes or in a pressure canner for 20 minutes at 10 lbs.

By the way, these are some of my best friends right now. Seriously, how did I ever can without them?!?

This looks lovely and like such a good idea. You'd have pasta sauce for weeks after that.

We didn't get enough tomatoes in our tiny garden to be able to can anything this year. But we're about to have loads of peppers!

Thanks so much for hosting the party! I linked up #'s 7,8, & - my hopeless chair addiction, my first pillowmaking attempt, and a plea for input on a very serious blogging matter! :)
Thanks again!

that looks so good right in the pan! I would have to refrain from making boat loads of pasta to eat all of the sauce in one setting! I am your newest GFC follower from the Aloha Friday Hop!
