Roasted Tomato Sauce For Freezing

Follow the above recipe, once cooled completely place 2 cups of roasted tomato sauce into quart ziplock bags. Make sure they are only half full and completely seal so that none of your sauce spills. Label bags with the name of the contents, if you put a special flavor in the sauce be sure to note it on the bag and the date.
 
You can also use a vacuum sealer to keep the sauce good longer. 
 
Place bags on a flat surface in the freezer, once frozen you can stack the bags but for now, you want them to stay flat. Once solid you can set the frozen bags on end like you would books on a shelf, to minimize space or simply stack.

Roasted Tomato Sauce For Canning

What you will need:

Boiling water canner or pressure canner
Quart jars
Lids and rings
A pan to heat lids
Stockpot
Bottled Lemon Juice or Citric Acid

You’ll want to start this process with a clean kitchen and a sterile working area. Wash your jars, and make sure you’ve gathered all of your supplies.
 

Get It All Hot

Simmer the sauce in a large stockpot, until your sauce reduces to your desired thickness (a 1/3 for a thin sauce, a 1/2 for thick). If you are using the boiling water canner fill it with water so that the top of your jars will be submerged if you are using a pressure canner check the directions on how much water to add and place the canner on high.

In a small pot add the lids and enough water to cover them, place them on the back of the stove on low.

Fill a casserole dish or other low sided large oven-safe container with a few inches of water. Add your jars to the water, and place in your oven at the lowest temperature.


Getting The Roasted Tomato Sauce Ready To Can


Once your canner is boiling, remove a jar from the oven, place a funnel on the top, spoon roasted tomato sauce into the jar leaving 1/4 inch headspace (between the sauce line and the lid) Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice or 1/2 teaspoon Citric Acid per quart of tomatoes (for pints use, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or a 1/4 teaspoon Citric Acid). Wipe the mouth of the jar, remove the lid from the pan using a lid magnet, and place it on top of the jar. Screw down the ring (don’t overtighten it but it should be snug), using a canning jar lifter place the filled jar into the canner. Continue filling jars and placing them in the water until the canner is full.
