Yield: 9 to 12 cups

I use my trusty Vitamix for this recipe, but you could also add all the ingredients to the saucepan, start cooking, and then use an immersion blender or food processor to combine. The recipe calls for frozen green tomatoes, but you can also use tomatoes fresh from the garden.

You’ll find that this sauce is more flavorful than store-bought, along with no fat and low sodium. Plus, your whole house will smell great while the sauce simmers.
