Really wished I had the time (and patience) to can all those lusciously plump tomatoes I’m seeing everywhere. I have this daydream about whipping up a homemade marinara sauce in the dead of winter to remind me of summer.
But here’s the next best thing: Gabriel’s All Natural Marinara Tomato Sauce.
There are shelves and shelves and shelves of different marinara sauces in the supermarket. Most of them taste the same: sweet (that’s the sugar), a little tangy (could be the sodium or vinegar) and, oh yes, vaguely tomatoey.
Gabriel’s tastes like what you’d want YOUR homemade marinara to taste like: full of tomato flavor, a hint of onion and garlic with just enough basil and spices to add a little interest.
This sauce is slow kettle cooked, just like you would do. It’s made with only 6 ingredients, this IS your homemade marinara sauce.
Here’s something else: it is gluten free and vegan… the way a marinara should be.
I found Gabriel’s in a small specialty food shop, but if you go to their Facebook Page, you can find out where to buy it in your area. Oh, and 10% of their profits go to different charities. I like that.
So don’t obsess about not canning all those tomatoes… you’ve got better things to do. And with Gabriel’s around, no one needs to know it isn’t homemade.
