Tomato sauce


This recipe is written so as to have lots of extras to store in Mason jars for future use or when time is limited. Normally, I make 6 mason jars .

Careful: mason jars to be placed in the freezer should not be filled more the ¾ of total capacity  of the pot (~600ml) ) to avoid breakage.
