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!
This should not be done, they are have more acid in them than they used to and need to be water bathed or pressure canned.

I've not put up much this year just about 40pts of beans, elderberry juice and cough syrup and some chicken broth and soup.
