Mom's Fresh Tomato Sauce

My mom makes this fresh tomato sauce, mainly in the summer when the Jersey Tomatoes are ripe and in season. This sauce is especially delicious on her homemade pizza!

INGREDIENTS:
10-12 Jersey Tomatoes (Beefsteak or Roma)
2 Cups Boiling Water
5 Garlic Cloves, Chopped
7 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Fresh Basil,
1 Tbsp. Oregano
Salt & Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Blanch 10-12 Jersey Tomatoes in 2 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove from stove, drain water, and add cold water. Remove skins under running water. When cool, remove core and cut tomato into wedges. In a sauté pan, lightly brown 5 cloves of chopped garlic in 7 tablespoons of olive oil. Add chopped tomatoes and season with fresh basil, oregano, salt & pepper to taste. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove cover & puree with an immersion blender (or with a traditional blender). Return sauce to a saute pan and simmer uncovered for approx. 15 minutes.
