It is time again for another edition of Show Your Stuff. We got another bunch of fresh tomatoes and this time we made up some spaghetti sauce.

4 large green peppers (cleaned and quartered)
4 large Onions (peeled and quartered)

8 gloves garlic (peeled)
2 Tablespoons Oregano
2 Tablespoons Parsley
2 Tablespoons Basil
2 Tablespoons crushed red pepper
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
3 Bay Leaves

Put Green peppers, onions, and garlic into food processor and liquifey 
Put all ingredients in a stock pot (do not use aluminum pot) except lemon juice
Bring to boil and let simmer on low heat for 5 hours. Stirring occasionally
While sauce is simmering prepare jars for canning**
After 5 hours add 1 teaspoon lemon juice to each jar, add sauce leaving 1/2 inch of room at top of jar.
seal jars and wipe off jars.
Boil jars in large pot for 40 minutes (for quart jars) having water at least 2 inches above lids.

*Have a pot of boiling water drop 4 or 5 tomatoes into boiling water for 45 seconds then place immediately into ice bath. The peels should come right off. Don't forget to core your tomatoes.

**Boil jars and lids in stock pot or jar sterilizer for 20 minutes. remove and let air dry.


  1. I added an easy fall project for those DIY-ers that are advanced or are just beginning. My Cozy Sweater Pillows (#26) make a great gift and recycle things we may be tempted to throw out. Hope you enjoy!
    Thanks for hosting the party!
