I seem to have planted waaaay too many tomatoes this year. I have 4 quarts of plum tomatoes on my counter, and 2 more will come in in a day or so.

I am hoping someone has a way to turn these into a wonderful spagetti sauce. I am learning to cook, but sauce always seems to start with paste. It seems to me that somebody has to know how to make a real old fashioned spagetti sauce from real home grown tomatoes.

If I have to cook it for more than a day that is o.k., my husband is out of town.

I am open to all suggestions, and thanks in advance.

Ooh, lucky you!
I'm not an accomplished cook or anything, but here's what I found. Skinning and cooking the tomatoes down, then freezing them just like that seemed to keep the fresh tomato taste better than making the sauce complete and thawing it out later. I used the baggies of frozen tomatoes for sauce and in soup bases and for meatloaf throughout the winter.

I'll leave it to others to give you recipes. I love putanesca sauces - with anchovies added.

Skinning? Ugh! 4 quarts of plum tomatoes?

Anyone have a good salsa recipe?
