  • Peel the heirlooms with a sharp knife. It doesn't have to be perfect - this is intended to be a rustic tomato sauce. Core the tomatoes and chop them into 2 inch chunks. Place in a small pot over medium heat.
  • Add the Balsamic Roasted Tomato halves. (I keep this staple in my refrigerator all the time. It's amazing the number of uses I find for them.)
  • Add the olive oil, and a pinch each of salt and pepper and stir.
  • Simmer until the sauce reaches the thickness you prefer. I typically simmer mine for about 30 minutes, but this at least partly depends on how juicy the heirlooms are that I'm using. Correct for seasoning.
  • I've refrigerated mine for up to two weeks without any problem.
