I can't tolerate canned tomato products at all. I can however eat all of the fresh ones. Does anyone know how to make some kind of tomato sauce or "pasta" sauce using fresh ones.

I would LOVE to learn how to make things from scratch, but no matter how hard I look, I've never been able to find scratch at the grocery store. :lol:

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Mom used to make tomato sauce from the organic tomatoes in the garden. (My Dad would put in about 350 tomato plants every year.) I didn't pay any attention because I never liked to cook. I do know though that she used Roma tomatoes, and she had a device that would remove the skins and seeds.

And I also remember that the sauce would seperate. You'd end up with a plate full of spaghetti that had "solid" sauce on top and a puddle of orange water at the bottom. It was the only thing Mom cooked that I wasn't crazy about.

This may be helpful . . . or not

We used to grow about abajillion tomatos when I was a kid. Mom would can tomato juice to be used year round. She would cut of the stemmy part and cook them whole in boiling water . . . I have not a clue as to how long. She would run them through a ricer (I believe that's device bartful was referring to) which would smash the meat and juice and strain out the seeds and skin. She'd add salt and then head into the canning process.

I would think you would do something like this but cook it down to remove a lot of the water. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help than that.

Yes - I make nearly everything in my house from scratch. Wouldn't imagine doing anything but. Are you looking for a simple sauce or more complex? ;)

In my opinion, roasting the tomatoes first makes an amazingly wonderful difference in the flavour. Slow roasting concentrates the flavour and the natural sugars caramelize. Same with garlic - roasted garlic is more mellow than raw. The following is a recipe using this technique (and this is a very, very simple recipe):

http://www.food.com/recipe/slow-roasted-tomato-sauce-28709 (you don't have to use maple sugar - just brown or granulated will also do - I also add fresh thyme leaves)

I made an awesome tomato sauce a few days ago that contains red wine and is slowly simmered 3 hours. Again, very simple but rich and delicious. It is a test recipe so I am not allowed to post yet but I will when I am able to.

Have you considered sauces other than tomato for meatloaf such as a red currant wine sauce or brown sugar sauce or mustard sauce or...?

:lol: Your husband and I would fight over the jelly, too. I love the stuff.

All I do for the glaze is reduce either red or white wine (or even Port) until syrupy (by about 2/3 to 3/4) then add a bit of jelly and fresh thyme. Then just glaze the loaf. I do the same with other jellies such as apricot and apple as they both go with meatloaf, especially if you include pork which I do.

I spend a lot of time processing foods. I have a lazy way to make sauce. I cut tomatoes in half and put them in the blender and blend to chop up the skins. Then I simmer it gently with regular stirring for a couple of hours to thicken it up. Then I freeze it. Last season I got enough to last for most of the year. At first I added things to make it more of a sauce when I was preparing it. You know how you find out periodically that something is bothering you that you were unaware of before? I had to dump out a bunch of my sauce due to something I added. Now I just do the plain tomatoes and I add anything I want to add when I make the meal.

This one isn't complicated but takes time and you need a bunch of basil (which I have plenty of right now). One batch requires about 12 large Roma tomatoes and garlic and basil to taste.

Slice tomatoes thickly and line bottom of roasting pan (I use a Corning Ware one) with slices. Sprinkle with fresh garlic, 8-10 basil leaves (or more), a little olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Do three layers that way. Bake the sauce in an oven at 350 degrees for 2-3 hours, stirring when necessary.

Boil noodles. Put some olive oil and more garlic in a frying type pan and heat. Add the sauce until hot, and then the cooked noodles just long enough to heat up. Serve with whatever you like -- cheese, more basil and so on.

Obviously you can also adjust this recipe to add more herbs or spices.

    • I have never had bone issues or anemic.  Honestly nothing.  If anything my energy levels have dropped since going gluten free, not the other way around.  I attribute it to the anxiety and mild depression caused by the diagnosis.  Before that I was extremely happy, healthy, with absolutely nothing to indicate anything at all is wrong.  The doctor told me that I don't need the additional test... I don't know why.  I guess the blood work was enough for them.  I requested that they send me the blood test results after the second doctor didn't give further insight.  But it will be a week or so before they arrive.  It's just so incredibly frustrating.
    • I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56.  Now I know why my menopause was so early. 
    • Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors.   I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels.  I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.
    • You only need one positive on the celiac panel.  I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage.   Good luck!  
    • Welcome to the forum.  First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were.  Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy.  Were the doctors gastroenterologists?  Third you need to research  celiac disease.  Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic?  Had your bones checked?
