      Fresh Heirloom Tomato Sauce

      2 Cups diced heirloom tomatoes
      ¼ Cup olive oil
      3-4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
      Fresh basil leaves, minced
      Fresh oregano leaves, minced
      Celtic Sea Salt, to taste
      1 Tbl Balsamic (optional)

      NOTE:  Use a colorful variety of any sized heirlooms. Size doesn’t matter! The cherry ones work just as well! Roasting the tomatoes first is also a wonderful option and will add a robust roasted tomato flavor!

      Method:
      • Process tomatoes in a food processor, OR rough chop tomatoes by hand reserving the juice.
      • In a large skillet, sauté garlic in olive oil for 1 minute only on medium heat.
      • Add the tomatoes and reserved tomato juice and bring to a boil.
      • As soon as the sauce reaches boiling point, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 20-40 minutes (depending on how watery your heirlooms are) until the sauce has thickened and the tomatoes separate from the olive oil, stirring from time to time.
