Step one of Making Tomato sauce
Step 1. Clean your sauce tomatoes and remove greens and stems. Gently core tops.
Step 2. Place prepared tomatoes in a stock pot such as a dutch oven or this Le Creuset and bring to a boil.
Step 3. Turn down heat and simmer until tomatoes fall apart. You can also use a potato masher to assist. You will have a wonderful start as pictured below.
The next step it to run it through the food mill twice. The first time on the largest sieve to strain the skins. The second time use the smallest sieve to catch the seeds!
Then you reserve the tomato pulp and use it to make sauce, according to the recipe you choose.
