How to Make Rich Tomato Sauce at Home
Making tomato sauce is a great way to use up a glut of tomatoes that you might have in the backyard if you are growing them, or if you can pick them up cheap when they are in season. Knowing exactly what is in your sauce is a good way to cut down on sugar, as commercially bought tomato sauces are usually crammed with the bad white stuff.
