How to make the spaghetti sauce with fresh tomatoes:
Chop a half or a small onion. Chop half of a zucchini into 1/2-inch size pieces. Dice one small green sweet pepper and one yellow sweet pepper. Use a garlic crusher and crush three large cloves of garlic. Set these vegetables aside, keeping them separate.
- Wash 8 large tomatoes. Set aside. Fill a large pot with water and carry to a boil. While the water is coming to a boil, set up an ice water bath. Do this by filling a large mixing bowl two thirds full with cold water and ice cubes.
- Drop 3 tomatoes into the boiling water and watch them closely. As you see the skins begins to split at the top and/or bottom of the tomatoes, remove them and place them immediately into the ice water bath.
- Separate them from the ice water bath after 2 minutes and set them on a cutting board. Starting at the top or bottom, where the skin has split, carefully peel the skin from the tomatoes. Use the tip of a paring knife or pull the skin with your fingers. Dip any tomato back into the boiling water for 30 seconds and then into the ice water bath if the skin does not come away easily. Wait for the tomato to cool slightly and continue removing the skin.
- Tips: you can use a serrated knife, cut each tomato in half and scoop out the majority of the seeds and discard them. Roughly chop the tomatoes and place them into a food processor. Throb the tomatoes until they are diced. Do not over process; you do not want them to turn into sauce yet.
- Empty the large pot you used to boil the tomatoes and fill with 2 to 3 inches of water. Place the pot over medium heat and add the tomato mix. Add two teaspoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of olive oil. Bring to a soft boil and immediately turn the heat down to low and allow the mixture to simmer. Keep an eye on them, stirring frequently while you prepare the vegetables.
- Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the heated pan. Add the chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook until the zucchini begins to brown. You can add the peppers and continue cooking the vegetables until the peppers begin to temper Add the crushed garlic and stir to combine, cooking for one more minute.
- Season the vegetables with a teaspoon of dried thyme and turn down the heat to low.
- Combine 1 teaspoon each of dried oregano and sweet basil to the tomato mix and stir in. Move the tomato mix back to the food processor and process just until no longer chunky, but not completely smooth.
- Add the tomato mix to the vegetables and stir to combine. Turn up the heat to medium and add 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter. Continue stirring to melt the butter. If you want the consistency to be a little thicker, add another teaspoon of butter.
- Let the sauce to a boil and add a half teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt before lowering the temperature so the sauce begins to simmer. Add oregano, thyme, parsley and basil to taste. Let the sauce to simmer for half an hour before serving. This sauce will serve for 5 people
