Ingredients
• Approximately 6 pounds fresh, fully ripe tomatoes*
• 1 pouch Mrs. Wages® Chili Base Seasoning Mix
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

*Note:  If fresh tomatoes are not available, use home or commercially
canned tomatoes. Blend tomatoes and liquid from 5 pints home-canned
tomatoes, or 5 cans (1-pound each) commercially canned tomatoes into
a smooth purée.

The purée may also be made with 4 cans (6-ounces each) tomato paste
mixed with 7 cups of water.
Instructions
1. Wash tomatoes. Dip a few tomatoes at a time into boiling water for
    30 to 60 seconds or until skins begin to split then place in cold water.
    Remove tomato skins. Cut in halves or quarters. Process in blender or
    food processor until a smooth consistency (purée) is reached.

2. Measure 5 pints (10 cups) purée into large saucepan. Add Mrs.
    Wages® Chili Base Seasoning Mix and sugar. Mix well.

3. Bring sauce to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 25
    minutes, stirring frequently. Sauce is now ready to eat, can or
    freeze for future use.

4. To freeze, pour into freezer containers and let cool.  Store
    covered in freezer up to 1 year. For canning, pour boiling hot
    sauce into clean, hot pint canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch
    headspace. Wipe rim clean. Adjust lids. Process for 35 minutes
    in boiling water bath. Boiling water should cover jars by 1-inch.

5. Test jars for airtight seal 12 to 24 hours after canning. If jars are not
    properly sealed, refrigerate and use within a week. Label and store
    in a cool, dry, dark place.

Yield: 5 pints

Serving suggestion: Brown and drain fat from 1/2 to 1lb of ground beef. Add 1 pint of prepared Mrs. Wages Chili Base. Add 1 (16 oz) can of pinto or kidney beans with liquid. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve chili.
