Tasting Summer Freshness in the Middle of Depressing Winter

Our garden this summer was all about the tomatoes. All the plants were started from seeds this year. I spent plenty of time lovingly coaxing them to grow in the basement under the florescent lights and wow - what a bounty we received!
This summer we canned tomatoes plan, we made pizza sauce, and loads and loads of pasta sauce. At the end of last year or maybe the year before we made some roasted sauce (it was 2014, oof!  Time flies). Since we tend to be lazy - to some extent - the idea of just tossing tomatoes, garlic, and onions in pans with olive oil, then blending them with fresh basil and adding some (shhh) lemon juice then boiling those jars… that's easy. Maybe my version of lazy and easy need some tweaking. Either way. We did this process at least 3 or 4 times this fall. We just had THAT many tomatoes.  That does not include the pizza sauce and multiple batches of canned tomatoes.
Last year we got tomato seeds too - these cute little yellow guys. They produce amazingly well, so our sauce is a pretty orange color - so good. So bookmark this recipe, since it's… winter…  I know I'll be eating fresh sauce all winter long - you can too - next year!
