After making over 100 meatballs I need to make some sauce.

My new go to cooking in bulk cookbook does have several red sauce recipes and one that was with the meatballs but Rocky likes his a little saucier ... as in with a bit of heat.

I got to cookin' again and filled 8 1/2 mason jars full off the glorious red stuff.

You can see by the tops of my lids these jars have been recycled many a time - I love that.

60 ounces or so of garlic and onion laced red nectar is stored in our freezer awaiting it's mate ... the mozzarella stuffed meatballs!

If you wish to get a little saucy yourself here's the recipe. (I have made these meatballs too and they are delish. You can't go wrong either way.)

I'd love to know what you've got cookin' in this heat ...

You are supposed to use new lids each time! You can reuse the rings, but not the lids!

Anonymous: Thanks for the tip ~ I will hope for the best :-) I sterilized both lids and jars (both this time and in the past) and so far so good - we are all still here - haha! I will definitly invest in more lids for the next round. Thanks for stopping by!

I canned whole tomatoes last year, but didn't make sauce. This is a great idea. Goodbye to store-bought sauce that I used in a pinch. Man -- you're on a roll.

Your sauce looks delish!!!
