Jenny, I think it must make a lot of sauce given the amounts. I'm curious to know, also.

Seems like a lot of garlic too, not that I would complain about that

This must make a LOT of sauce.

Haven't heard back yet from the person I got it from.

105 oz of tomatoes is just over 3 quarts, most recipes call for that or more.

Gonna make a guess it make some where in the neighborhood of a gallon of sauce, give or take a little.

looks like a good basic recipe, buti'm curious about adding the water to the sauce. usually, i'm cooking the water out of the tomatoes in the sauce to thicken it.

Personally, I have never encountered a recipe that called for that quantity of tomato in one batch. But this may be from a "cooking for a crowd" resource or something. I bet it makes a ton of sauce ...

And I cannot remember a recipe that called for water like that either ...

Lydia's calls for 35 ounces of tomatoes for enough sauce for 6 servings. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/re...tomato%20sauce
