Dylan Wallace’s NantucketGrown Tomato Sauce

15 pounds fresh tomatoes

10 garlic cloves, diced

3 medium sized onions, diced

12 cup of extra virgin olive oil (evoo)

Skin tomatoes by blanching them: boil a pot of water. Bring a large 6 quart or larger Dutch oven or stock pot of water to a boil over high heat. Fill a large bowl with ice and water and set this next to the stove. Prepare the tomatoes by slicing a shallow X in the bottom of each fruit. Working in batches, drop several tomatoes into the boiling water. Cook until you see the skin start to wrinkle and split, 45-60 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, lift the tomatoes out and place them in the ice water. Continue with the rest of the tomatoes, transferring the cooled tomatoes from the ice water to another large bowl as they cool. When finished blanching discard the blanching water from the pot – no need to dry the pot.

After blanching, core the tomatoes and use your hands or a paring knife to strip the skins from the tomatoes. Set aside

Dice onións: in the same large pot or Dutch oven – sauté onions in evoo until soft and golden then add garlic, making sure you do not burn garlic.

Add blanched chopped tomatoes to pot

Add 2 teaspoons salt and pepper to taste, basil and oregano to taste

Bring to boil; then cover and simmer for 12 hour

Add mixture to sterilized quart jars add top of each jar with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and cover jar with lid

Add jar to boiling water bath making sure jars are fully submerged for 40 minutes; remove and cool on the counter
