Nan's Tomato Sauce Recipe

My Nan - Marge Simpson (yes you all read right), makes the most delicious Tomato Sauce and with my beautiful tomato plants full of fruit - I thought it would be a great idea to make some sauce.

The only trouble is - my tommies are yet to turn red - BUT - since I have her recipe, I will share it with you all.
