4-6 tablespoons garlic
4-6 tablespoons italian seasoning
3 tablespoons salt
1/2 cup sugar
2-3 bay leaves
and that's it!! let it cook for 1-2 hours and laddle into jars. top with hot lids and flip upside down for the day. the next day check to make sure everything is sealed and you're good to go!
ps---you can also add an onion or a green pepper or both for some extra texture and flavor for the sauce. just chop super fine or puree it with the tomatoes!
I wanted to tell you that I did your way of canning and the next day the lids were sealed but then a few days later they popped. Do you know why that happened.
God, since I didn't get a chance to tell my son about you, will you sit him on your lap and tell him about me.
