Fresh Tomato Sauce
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
16 ingredients
3 servings
A recipe from my Great Aunt's collection. This is one she clipped out of the paper, probably the Chicago Tribune. This contains some unusual ingredients - in particular saffron and ground coriander, and the recipe also calls for steeping a bundle of herbs in the sauce as it cooks. If saffron is too costly, you can substitute dried safflower or just leave it out. Makes 3 cups sauce.
