Tasty Heirloom Tomato Sauce Recipe

Happy Monday guys!!

I am very excited to share this NEW tomato sauce recipe.

My love for heirloom tomatoes started at a young age. My parents use to grow heirlooms 20 years ago when we lived in Rescue California.  I sure miss these beauties, and was super excited to find a local farm in Apple Hill that sells heirloom tomatoes.

Thank you to 24 Carrot Farmin Apple Hill for the lovely produce. If you are a fan of heirloom tomatoes, then check out this delicious tomato sauce recipe.
