Recipe from Small Space Gardening

my mother loved to can, but me, not so much. That was something she never taught me anything about. In fact, she had me half scared to even try canning. But I do freeze my extra vegetables and that works just fine for me. but for this newsletter, I though I would include some of her canning recipes. These are recipes she adapted, or gathered from the relatives.

Tomato Sauce

4 quarts peeled, chopped Tomatoes
3 cups Onions
2 to 3 cloves of Garlic
2 cups of Celery
1 Hot pepper seeds and all
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Oregano Leaves
2 teaspoons Basil
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1/4 cup Parsley flakes

Steam and pulp tomatoes. This is an equivalent of a 1.5 gallon ice cream pail full. Put the tomatoes into a large saucepan.
Put onions, celery, garlic, pepper into a blender and blend them fine.
Add these ingredients to the tomatoes
Cook all together until the mixture is hot.
Add the brown sugar, salt, oregano leaves, basil, pepper and parsley into the mixture. Bring this to a boil and boil for 20 minutes.
Pour into pint canning jars and process them.

cook and stir the mixture until the vegetables are tender.
peel and chop the tomatoes. Add the tomatoes into the pot with the other vegetables. Also, add some salt for flavor.
