Canning Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
We have an abundance of tomatoes from our garden each year. We eat a lot of them and use the rest in a variety of ways by canning the tomatoes; making tomato sauce; tomato soup; making and canning salsa; and by making spaghetti sauce.
Countrified Hicks Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce
8 c. tomato sauce
8 c. diced tomatoes
2 small cans tomato paste
4 T. olive oil
2 T. sugar
4 tsp. chopped onion
4 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp. Italian herb seasoning
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. basil
Pour all ingredients into a crockpot and stir well. Cook over low heat for 8 hours. I like cooking it in the crockpot because it does not heat up your kitchen and allows the flavors to really "meld" together.
When the sauce is done, pour the hot sauce into hot prepared jars. Add into EACH jar 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 Tablespoons of vinegar into each jar. Fill up to 1/4" headspace and wipe the rims clean with a rag dipped into vinegar. Put the lids on and place into a water bath canner. Water should completely cover the lids.
When the water begins to boil, start timing then. Let boil for 40 minutes.
Makes 3 quarts.
