Apple Chutney

Apple Chutney

Never mind the pumpkin spice craze going on right now. Instead, I’ll opt for this Indian inspired apple chutney spread. On EVERYTHING! This apple chutney is the flavor of fall in a jar (or bowl, however you roll).  Having picked an abundance of apples from my […]

I’m beginning to question the sanity of having such a large garden. I do really enjoy gardening and all beautiful fresh edible things that it produces.  The catch is that during “harvest” time it takes up a lot of my free time to preserve the […]

Pizza Awesome Sauce

Happy hump day!  I’m in a midweek scurry to get things yet to be accomplished off my to-do list. I’ve had a winter project list that’s been in dire need of completion now that spring is merely a few weeks away (or so I’m hoping). Paint the guestroom, help hubby build a coat rack and entryway hooks, build a frame for a large painting, finish my son’s scrapbook that should have been done two years ago (turns out I hate scrapping so it kept getting put off)…. It feels so GOOD to get things done and checked off the list.   This week has therefore been a week for easy meals so I’m making pizza tonight with this quick and awesome pizza sauce and therefore I’ve been calling it pizza awesome sauce!

This sauce is super fast to put together using dry spices, smoked salt, tomato paste and fire roasted diced tomatoes. Toss it all in a blender and puree.  Then use it as a pizza sauce, or a dipping sauce for other fun munchies, in your scrambled eggs, or whatever else you want some awesome sauce to spice up your life with.

Ingredients
  • 1 (15oz) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 (6oz) can tomato paste or use ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2-3 teaspoons dried oregano to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh minced garlic)

  • ⅛-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until blended.
  2. Makes enough sauce for 3-4 pizzas depending on size of pizza.
Notes
If you prefer a thinner sauce, use tomato sauce instead of tomato paste or thin it out with a little water.
Sauce can be frozen or canned.
To can via water bath, add 1 Tbsp lemon juice to each pint or 2 Tbsp lemon juice to quarts. Fill sterile jars with sauce to ½" headspace. Wipe rim, add lid and ring until finger tight. Submerge in boiling water 35 minutes for pints, 40 minutes for quarts. Let cool for 12-24 hours and be sure each jar has sealed before storing.
