Very Good, 1 tip I was told by a neighbor, if you are using fresh tomatoes, place in a brown paper bag the night before and freeze. Let them start thawing in the sink and run under warm water and if they are ripe they are very easy to peal if they are still a little green they are a little harder and then you do not have boil the water and let them cool. Really enjoyed.

Excellent sauce! Only changes I made: I did not use Riccota(will try next time) and I used regular brown sugar. Very rich complex taste , best sauce from this site for now, although takes time, but well worth it.
