    I'm looking for recipes for spaghetti sauce -- either recipes using canned pureed tomatoes or recipes for canning spaghetti sauce. Thanks!

    Spaghetti Sauce:

    Saute a chopped onion and 3-4 garlic cloves in some olive oil in a large saucepan
    Add 2 small cans of tomato paste
    1 large can of tomato puree
    1 large can of crushed tomatoes
    Add about 1 1/2 of that large can filled with water
    Add either dried or fresh basil
    red pepper
    A couple of tablespoons of brown sugar
    A pinch of cinnamon
    A bay leaf or 2
    Salt and pepper to taste
    About a quarter to a half cup of red wine (optional)..if you don't have wine, just put a couple splashes of balsamic vinegar if you like.
    Simmer for approximately 4 hours, or until you get the consistency you like

    My Spaghetti Sauce recipe (for canning)

    This is per 5 gallon bucket (1/2 bushel roma tomatoes)

    I boil down contents of 5 gal pail and run it through a tomato strainer. Then I place the tomato in a rectagular roaster so that it covers both front and back burners on my stove for rendering down. Then I add:
    2 c. chopped onions
    3 cloves garlic-minced
    2 TBSP Basil
    2 tsp Thyme
    2 TBSP chopped celery (1 stalk)
    3 TBSP oregano
    3 Bay leaves (broken up)
    3 green peppers (chopped to desired consistency)
    3 TBSP sugar
    1/4 tsp black pepper

    I then boil this down to the desired thickness that I want for my pasta sauce. I then pressure cook for 25 min./quarts.
