Bountiful garden

Our late start on the season meant that most of our tomatoes didn’t ripen before the threat of the first frost. To avoid losing the tomatoes completely, I picked most of them, and I’m hoping they’ll ripen in the house… However, to deal with that tomatoes that are ripe, I decided to make very basic tomato sauce and freeze it. Keep in mind, I’ve never made tomato sauce (I always buy it in a jar).  I hope this experiment turns out okay.
