1st. Heat the oven to 330.

 

2nd.Get 3-4 #s of tomatoes.I like to use romas. Remove the stems and cut an"X" in the tomatoes.Makes it easier to remove the skins.

 

Now get a pot  of water to a boil.Toss the tomatoes in for about a minute.Then immediately toss in an ice water bath.Remove the skins.

 

Then start smashing the tomatoes by hand!!

 

3rd.Now get a dutch over,add some oil and butter.Then saute some garlic and basil.Then add the smashed tomatoes.

 

4th.Now add some carrots,half a whole onion,and some fresh basil.The onion and carrots help reduce the acid of the tomatoes.

Once the sauce is done,you'll fish out the carrots,basil,and onions.

 

Also if you want to add any meats,mushrooms,ect,you can now or add when the sauce is done.

Since I'm making this for stuffed shells tomorrow,its pretty basic sauce.

 

5th.Now toss in the oven and cover,but leave a small crack in the lid.

Now this is the long part.I usually go easily 8 hours! Yes!! 8 hours!! Check and stir every hour or so.I like a thicker sauce,so I cook it down a bit.Thinner sauce will be a bit less time.

 

I'll try to get a "finished"pic,but this is what it looks like before i add to the oven.

I have done the boil/ice method. I have been just slicing the tomatoes in half and putting them cut side down in a big baking pan at 400 in the oven. I think it only takes 10 minutes and the skins will start to turn black. Then they peel easy. Idk if it's less work or not, but I like it better than having to go buy ice.

How's your cast iron holding up after cooking for 8 hours with tomatoes?

That's an old myth, well-seasoned CI holds up just fine to the acid of a tomato.

For true.

And enemy dude drops a deuce of a nuke right on your casa.

 

You'll be deader than fried chicken.

 

But your cast iron will survive just fine.

You'll have to re season it.

A nuclear deuce sounds like another chapter in tales of the loo.
