Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the tomatoes in boiling water until the skin begins to split, about 1 minute. Immediately remove the tomatoes and plunge into ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Remove the tomatoes from the ice water; remove and discard the tomato skins. Cut the tomatoes into chunks. Blend the tomatoes in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat; warm the crushed garlic in the oil until fragrant, being careful not to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the blended tomatoes and salt; bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir the basil through the sauce. Allow the sauce to sit for a few minutes to allow the flavor from the basil to blend into the sauce.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was simply delicious! I only put the tomatoes in the boiling water for 5 seconds and they started peeling. I also cut them in half and took the seeds out. I added the salt when I was crushing the garlic so I didn't add any more to that. The only thing I would do differently is to add 1 or 2 more tomatoes because it was so good and gone too fast!

Simple, fast, and delicious. Skipped the cold water bath. Easily removed the skins and used a potato masher to instantly get the authentic chunky texture I wanted without dicing/blending. 5 medium tomatoes served two adult sized portions.

Excellent. Surprising complex for such a simple recipe. I can't wait to try it with fresh heirloom tomatoes next year!
