{Garden To Plate Series} Marinara Sauce with Fresh Tomatoes

We have been harvesting a lot lately and I have been cooking  a lot too but the bad news is I couldn’t take pictures. I somehow managed to take pictures of this and here’s the blogpost.  At our home, there’s nothing like too many tomatoes.

Although it’s not garden to ‘plate’ oh well, I’m gonna add this recipe to the series. Here’s how I made it. image2 (22) You will need Tomatoes- 5 lbs (I used San Marzano and roma) Garlic cloves- 5-7 Basil leaves- 1/4 cup(roughly chopped) Italian Seasoning/oregano – 3 tbsp Raisins- 5(optional) Salt n pepper- to taste Red pepper flakes- 1/2 tsp Olive oil- 3 tbsp METHOD
  1. Blanch tomatoes and peel the skin. Blend them into puree.
  2. Heat some olive oil in a large pot and add sliced garlic. Sauté until lightly brown.
  3. Add all the other ingredients and simmer for 1 hour.
  4. You can use this right away or freeze it or can it by adding a little lemon juice.
