First Attempt at Tomato (Marinara) Sauce from the garden

Peeling the tomatoes
Chopping garlic (yes I have a Miracle blade set, and yes it does kick ass)
Crushing tomatoes in with garlic, onion, and olive oil that had been sauteed.
Meatballs and simmering sauce
Marinara sauce 3 hours from finish with fresh basil, meatballs, and salt, pepper added to taste (finished in the crock pot)
All the tomatoes came from my small garden, and were of the Roma variety. Next time we'll quarter the tomatoes before crushing to allow some juice to escape - it took a while for the sauce to thicken. Also we'll be able to remove many of the seeds. Looks, and smells, delicious! Can't wait to try it!
