Homemade Tomato Sauce using a Food Mill
- 8 pounds Roma tomatoes whole
- 6 medium Onions rough chopped
- 2 heads garlic cut in half
- 2 cups Red wine You can also use port or vermouth.
- Add all the ingredients to a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Immediately turn your heat down to low, cover the pot, and allow it to simmer on low for one hour.
- After one hour, check on the sauce and stir well. Crush the tomatoes in the process. Re-cover your stock pot and allow it to simmer on low for another hour.
- Remove the pot lid and stir sauce. Allow to simmer one hour or longer until the sauce thickens.
- Once the sauce has thickened sufficiently, remove the pot from heat and allow the sauce to cool for 10 minutes.
- Place food mill over a deep bowl or pot and carefully transfer some of the sauce to the food mill. A soup ladle works well for this process.
- Crank the food mill as the finished sauce drops into the bowl below. The skins and other debris will remain in the food mill.
- Once all the sauce has been processed through the food mill, discard the skins and other debris. Decant the sauce into a jar, place the lid on the jar, and refrigerate.
