How to Make Homemade Tomato Sauce

October 1, 2023

Creating homemade tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes is a rewarding and versatile culinary endeavor. Here is a step-by-step guide to making your own homemade tomato sauce:


  • 3 kg (6.5 lb) Plum/Roma tomatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons Oregano (optional)
  • 7-8 Basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon juice/vinegar (if canning, use ¼ cup)


1. Prepare the Tomatoes:

  • Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil.
  • While the water is heating, prepare an ice bath in a bowl.
  • Core out the stems from the tomatoes and make a shallow “X” on the bottom of each tomato.

2. Blanch and Peel the Tomatoes:

  • Place the tomatoes into the boiling water for 30-60 seconds.
  • Quickly transfer the blanched tomatoes to the ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  • Once cooled, peel the skin from the tomatoes.

3. Chop the Tomatoes:

  • Chop the peeled tomatoes into small chunks and set them aside.

4. Sauté Onions and Garlic:

  • In a large pot, heat olive oil over low heat.
  • Add chopped onions and sauté until they become golden, which should take around 7-8 minutes.
  • Add crushed garlic and sauté for an additional 2 minutes.

5. Cook the Tomatoes:

  • Add the chopped tomatoes to the pot.
  • Season with salt, oregano, and basil.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Let it simmer for 60-90 minutes, stirring frequently, until it reaches your desired consistency (most of the liquid should evaporate, and the tomatoes should resemble a thick, jam-like consistency).
  • Stir in the lemon juice or vinegar at the end and turn off the heat.

6. Puree (Optional):

  • If you prefer a smoother tomato sauce, you can use a hand blender to puree the sauce until it reaches your desired texture.
  • Transfer the sauce to a jar.


  • The best tomatoes for homemade sauce are Roma tomatoes, Plum tomatoes, San Marzano, or a combination of several types. Ripe tomatoes are essential.
  • The addition of onion, garlic, basil, and oregano is optional; you can omit them or use some based on your preferences.
  • If you plan to can the sauce for long-term storage, ensure you follow proper canning procedures to maintain freshness and safety.
  • For short-term storage, store the sauce in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze it for 2-3 months.

Homemade tomato sauce is a versatile staple that can elevate a wide range of dishes, including pasta, pizza, gnocchi, meats, and chicken recipes. Enjoy your homemade creation!

  4. Gregg Harris says:

    Great recipe, my question is I noticed the sauce was cool before putting into the jar. How long will this sauce last int the refrigerator?

  5. Good God, NO! Just NO!!! This is not how you make tomato sauce.

  6. Cuz1971 says:

    You don’t need to X tomatoes skins will peel of very well after it is put in hot water then in ice water

  7. I don't peel mine. I core them, cut into quarters. Boil them down and run through a canning seed mill. Then I return to heat and season the batch. The next day after it sits in the fridge over night I taste it again. Then I heat it Then can it.

  8. Thanks

    Just seen a butt load of Military vehicle on a train next to interstate 10 here in California getting shipped out mostly bulldozers and tanks and tactical vehicles somethings gonna happen

  10. Shitty Bill says:

    Some improvements: Prepare tomatoes as shown. Instead of just onions, sautee a sofrito (onions, carrots and celery, diced). Then add the tomatoes and cook down. At the end, add the minced garlic as adding them with the onions or sofrito will mute the flavor (onion and garlic will cancel each other out). Brown minced veal, pork and beef with salt/pepper, add sauce and let cook for 4 hours. Don't let it stick!

  11. Do you have to do anything special with the jars except for clean them?

  12. Thanks for this recipe. I will surely try it out

  13. zid dars says:

    do you have a way to make it less thick

  14. gremlin0890 says:

    I ended up doing this without onions and used onion powder. But decided to add 1 medium sized Hungarian wax pepper and 1 green cayenne pepper from my garden, both sliced very thin. It added just the right amount of heat to my sauce and came out wonderful

  27. Waka Waka says:

    I do mine completely different… I have never used ice. I just scoop out the center with a spoon and lay the inners face down. When they soften up a little then I place a top on the pot and add oil. After hit it with flavor. Cream is awesome. Especially DRY cream. It thickens up differently. A little bit of a cornstarch slurry and white wine. Done . 😊
