    HeatherFeather's Note:

    A recipe from my Great Aunt's collection. This is one she clipped out of the paper, probably the Chicago Tribune. This contains some unusual ingredients - in particular saffron and ground coriander, and the recipe also calls for steeping a bundle of herbs in the sauce as it cooks. If saffron is too costly, you can substitute dried safflower or just leave it out. Makes 3 cups sauce.

      I liked the flavors in this recipe. I didn't use the saffron because I didn't have any. I threw all the herbs into the sauce (no cheeseclosth available) and pulled out the thyme and orange rind when it was finished. Like Rita I cooked the tomatoes with the skin and seeds, put them through my food processer and then a quick whirl through the food mill to get out the extra seeds. Its still quicker than spending time peeling the tomaotes. I got about 1 quart of sauce, but I used Roma tomatoes which don't contain as much water as other varieties.

      I enjoyed this fresh out of the garden sauce. Tomatoes and herbs were all fresh. The orange rind I didn`t have so I used lemon. The saffron got lost in the sauce you can save you money and skip it. I grow my own saffron so it was really no hole in my pocket. The herbs I chopped and added right to the sauce. The tomatoes I use skin, seeds and all just blended before added to the pot. The texture was great. I simmered for 1 hour if not more. I also served the same day as making I couldn`t wait. Very good. This would be a great sauce for seafood.
