MAKING SPAGHETTI SAUCE TO FREEZE

I am trying to keep up with my vegetable garden. It seems that everything is ripening at the same time. My beautiful ever-bearing raspberries are doing just that. I am picking about 2 or 3 quarts every few days. I freeze them to enjoy during the cold winter months. Last week, I picked loads of roma tomatoes and sweet and hot peppers as well. With them, I made two batches of spaghetti sauce and a batch of chili sauce. I'll give you my recipe for the spaghetti sauce this week and the recipe for the chili sauce next week. If you have your own vegetable garden, I hope you are keeping up with all of the veggies. Enjoy a great week!
