My Recipe Box - Slow Cooker Tomato Sauce


It's tomato season and I had so many, so I scouted out slow cooker recipes for tomato sauce and cobbled together this one.

Slow-Cooker Tomato Sauce

6 pounds of tomatoes, roughly chopped
2 medium onions, roughly chopped
6 cloves garlic
1 – 8oz jar of organic tomato paste
1 and 1/2 tablespoons organic dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Some honey to sweeten
1/2 cup white wine or water
salt & pepper to taste
Dried chili flakes to taste


 In a slow-cooker, combine all ingredients and mix until everything is well-distributed  Turn the slow-cooker on low and allow to cook for 8 to 12 hours, mixing occasionally.

Some recipes placed the tomatoes in hot water to remove the skins.
Others stated that  removing the seeds from the tomatoes will prevent the sauce from turning bitter.
Many added brown sugar or white or honey to sweeten.
