When I made my own tomato sauce, I used fresh ripe tomatoes from my over productive garden.

I wash them, cut off the top stem end, cut in pieces, and throw them in a pot adding some water, chopped onion, chopped celery, maybe some chopped peppers, or even at times some chopped carrots, and salt. I let it simmer, and as the tomatoes became cooked, I mash them. I let this cook til everything is done to my satisfaction. edited to say, I probably cook this longer than anyone else would to get as much flavor as possible from the skins, etc.

Then, I run everything through a blender or food processor, and then strain. Back to the stove it goes over low heat til it is of the thickness I like. Then I usually freeze the sauce in ice cube trays and then put the cubes in zip lock bags.

I just saw on TV someone who suggested that you wash and prep your tomatoes as usual. Place the tomato pieces on a baking sheet and sprinkle them with some coarse salt. Then place them in a warm oven until mushy. Then buzz in a food processor if you wish. I think I will try this out and see how it goes.

I don't think so. I think they would mush up nicely, not get dried out. I will try it and let you know.

I have a similar recipe posted somewhere here, but I halve the tomatoes and sprinkle with fresh garlic, parsley, and a small amount of marjoram and oregano, and also roast red or yellow quarered peppers and a quartered onion, then blend and toss with EVOO, and peelings fall right off.
