Quick Homemade Tomato Sauce

How to make a quick homemade tomato sauce with ripening tomatoes. Stop wasting money today and make a sauce with rotten tomatoes. 

One way to save money is to reuse your kitchen scraps. Making soups with kitchen scraps is one of the best ways to save money. Because we sometimes have to buy in bulk, we tend to buy more than we need because 1) we don’t want to waste gas, 2) we don’t want to waste money 3) lastly, we sure don’t want to keep going to the store several times in one week. 

Life will indeed change forever because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, as there are several changes we will need to make. One difference you can make right now is to avoid wasting food.

Buying Tomatoes

If you go to the store and buy one tomato, it will be for a specific reason. But why would you buy one tomato if you don’t intend to go to the market again?

When buying tomatoes, pick tomatoes that are plump and with smooth skin. It is also good to pick the ones free of bruises, cracks, and no blemishes. 

Making homemade tomato sauce

This homemade tomato sauce comes together in just minutes. When you see how easy it is, you will want to make your tomato sauce all the time. This sauce is flavorful and perfect for cooking meat, poultry, seafood, and used as a pasta sauce. 

Made with Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce and balsamic vinegar, all you need is a few simple ingredients such as olive oil, garlic, parsley, salt, and onion. The combination makes the sauce rich and fragrant. 

The wonderful thing about making your own Tomato Sauce is that you can control the ingredients and keep the bad stuff out.  And also, you can make it in advance or right before preparing a meal. 

I often make about 16 to 24 ounces of sauces and keep them in mason jars in my refrigerator. So far, the sauce has lasted 3+ weeks. I have not had a lousy sauce yet. But I also use a clean spoon and regularly add a few drops of olive oil when necessary.

How to make Homemade Tomato Sauce

First, I would recommend preparing all the ingredients before starting. 

  • Cut out the bad part from all the tomatoes and diced tomatoes.
  • In a pot or Dutch oven, heat up the oil, add the crushed garlic and diced tomatoes. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the onion becomes translucent. 
  • Add the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes under low heat. 
  • Add balsamic vinegar, Noubess Hot Sauce, and salt to taste. 
  • Continue cooking for another 5 – 7 minutes until the sauce thickens. 
  • Remove from the heat and let cool. 
  • When cool, add the tomato sauce to a blender. Add water and blend until smooth. 
  • Add mixture back to the pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 5-7 minutes. Adjust seasoning.

How to store Homemade Tomato Sauce

Mason Jars are the best glass jars to store tomato sauce, pickled vegetables, etc… I would recommend buying jars that are 16oz.

The homemade tomato sauce will stay in the refrigerator in about a week and a half (1 1/2 half weeks) and about one month in the freezer. If you plan on freezing the jars longer than one month, make sure they are labeled and dated.

These types of jars are large enough to hold food for any canning project you have.

Notes: 

  • For each 1 cup of diced tomatoes add ¼ cup of water
  • For each cup of diced tomatoes add 1 ½ teaspoon of balsamic vinegar
  • Up to 1 teaspoons of lemon juice for every 2 – 3 cups of tomato sauce. 
  • Add more balsamic vinegar and lemon juice if you want more acidity. 
  • Add sugar if preferred as well.
