How I can spaghetti sauce

Before I get started explaining how I make my spaghetti sauce, refer back to my post on processing tomatoes, because it is my first step to this process. This is the second steps.

I will get all those wonderful tomatoes out of my freezer the night before and set them some where to thaw out overnight. Uh…I had 19 ziploc bags so I put them in my tub. lol

The next morning I got all my jars ready and caps and lids. Then I set up an assembly line. I put a strainer in the sink and I would take one bag at a time and strain any left over juice and water out. photo IMG_20130914_090804_406_zps3556305f.jpg  photo IMG_20130914_130527_834_zps618c5deb.jpg
After straining, I put in blender and blend til I get a puree.  photo IMG_20130914_130538_711_zpsb7e724bb.jpg Next I pour that into a stainless steel pot and cook down. photo IMG_20130914_130545_484_zps97658481.jpg I add my spices.  photo IMG_20130914_134211_978_zps31f45fa6.jpg I just use salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings. Now I put a little kicker in mine. I add a little cajun seasoning. And tomato paste as a thickner. Um…I just eyeball everything. I dont really measure.

I will let that cook for about 30 minutes. Then I remove from stove and laddle into warm jars. photo IMG_20130914_154419_032_zpse6db5db9.jpg I put the caps and lids on making sure tops of jars are wiped clean. photo IMG_20130914_154438_990_zps45555fdc.jpg
I will put my jars into my water bather and then pour water in until it covers tops of jars.  photo IMG_20130914_154446_611_zps516add7f.jpg When the water starts to boil then I will start timing. I let them process for around 30 minutes. photo IMG_20130914_180756_432_zps3a7ec17f.jpg
I then remove jars from water very carefully with a jar lifter and pot holder. Caution jars will be extremely hot. Just set somewhere for them to cool and after a while you should start hearing….POPS!!!! This is to let you know jars are sealing good. photo IMG_20130914_180806_566_zpsb8f98e05.jpg Wholah! You have spaghetti sauce.

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.

  1. I think I like your method much better than mine! I’ve been cooking spaghetti sauce all day trying to get it to thicken up. Still not there. I’ll finish it in the morning, next time I’ll have to try this instead
