So how to make tomato sauce?
First prepare a pot of hot water (about 60 degrees, no need to boil), put the washed tomatoes into the pot, cover and simmer for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, it can be seen that the tomatoes are peeling automatically. Then cut the peeled tomatoes into large pieces - if there are immature, green seeds in the tomatoes, remove them so that they don't affect the taste. Break up the tomatoes with a blender - cut the tomatoes into chunks first, then break them up to avoid losing too much juice in the process. Pour the crushed tomato juice water into the pot, add rock sugar, bring to a boil, then turn to low heat and simmer. ——When it is more viscous, stir it with a spatula from time to time to avoid sticking to the pan. Boil until it becomes thick and looks like a "sauce", squeeze in an appropriate amount of lemon juice and continue to boil for three or four minutes.
This completes a jar of homemade tomato sauce. Tomato sauce tastes sweet and sour, which can increase appetite. Lycopene is more easily absorbed by the body when it contains fat; it is especially suitable for patients with arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and nephritis. Chilled, eat ketchup rather than fresh tomatoes.
