    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    The sautéed garlic and onion added to the blender for a quick puree adds a much more aggressive taste in this sauce ;) Even though buying a jar of marinara is cheaper, you can't compare the taste of homemade sauce! After receiving a bushel full of garden tomatoes, I got adventurous and made this Homemade Sauce. It's so easy a beginner cook would impress guests! After my family raved about this, I may never buy jar sauce again. This sauce can be made and used as a spaghetti or marinara.... I used it as part of my Chicken Parmesan -- This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and frozen! I used dried herbs, you can substitute fresh - just be sure to triple the amount ;)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *BLANCHING TOMATOES: While stock pot or large dutch oven water is boiling, cut a large "X" with a paring knife on the bottom of tomatos. Carefully drop tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds. Once removed from water, place in a bowl of ice water this stops the cooking. The skin will peel right off tomatoes.
    2. 2
      Blanch and peel tomatoes; set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large skillet, add olive oil and Add the onion, garlic and bay leaves, sauté until limp and fragrant Add salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      In a blender, (in batches) add tomatoes, and sautéed onion and garlic mixture.
    5. 5
      Puree until desired consistency.
    6. 6
      Transfer puree to stock pot add basil, oregano, sugar, and pepper (red pepper flakes if using) and bring to a slow boil over medium heat .
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to simmer and continue to cook 2.5 hours. (Sauce will turn bright red to a dark red/orange and thicken up) Stir occasionally. Taste! If the sauce is too sweet for you, add white wine vinegar by the teaspoon (this will cut the sweet).
    8. 8
      Serve over pasta, or your favorite recipes that include marinara sauce.
    9. 9
      ENJOY with loved ones!

      Really liked the method of this simple but ah, so fragrant marinara sauce. It is not the time for fresh tomatoes, though, so I used 3 X 14 oz cans of tomatoes instead.
