Can your own Spaghetti Sauce.

It always seems like I don't ever have enough tomatoes (no matter how many I plant) in my garden to make everything that I want to make, so a lot of times I will buy the # 10 sized cans of tomato sauce to use. I will recan the tomato sauce in to smaller jars and I will make spaghetti sauce with some of it. it's pretty easy and really good. I use it for spaghetti, pizza, and anywhere a need a red pasta sauce.  
Canned Spaghetti Sauce
3 # 10 cans of Tomato sauce
5 Onions chopped, I use a quart of frozen or canned onions.
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tbl Worcestershire sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped garlic ( I use the chopped garlic in a jar from the store)
4 Tbl dried oregano
4 Tbl dried basil
3 bay leaves ( be sure to take these out before you can)
1 cup vinegar
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp celery salt
1/4 cup salt
Let simmer several hours. It will reduce down a little. Remove the bay leaves and fill sterilized  quart jars add hot lids and process in a water bath for 40 minutes ( be sure to adjust for altitude)

Start with 3 # 10 cans of tomato sauce. Pour into a large pan.

Add all your spices and let simmer for several hours.

Put in Jars and process. 


  1. I think you should do a blog about dehydrating marshmellows. I never heard about that. What do you used them for? After being dehydrated can they be used for roasting again? Don't they have a pretty good shelf life already? Inquiring minds what to know :)

    1. kkezir20, I am working on the marshmallows now and as soon as I am done I will do a post on it.
      Have a great day

  2. How would this recipe work with whole fresh tomatoes?

    1. Candi,
      Oh yes this would work great with fresh tomatoes. Just prepare your tomatoes as you would for sauce ( peeled, strained and cooked down) then go from there.
      Have a great day,

  3. My doctor told me to start my 4 and a half month old on solids so I began with the basics. He's always been a heavy eater (7 oz. bottles every 3 hours) so I expected the same with solids. I've been giving him a half a jar of baby food mixed with some rice cereal and a 4oz. bottle for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a 7oz. bottle between breakfast and lunch, lunch and dinner. He still seems hungry or starts to get hungry before his 3 hour mark sometimes, I was just curious if anyone knows about how much baby food he should be getting? I've heard it's better to increase the baby food instead of the formula, but I don't know for sure. How much does your baby eat?
