You can save a great deal of time when making housemade red sauce from plum tomatoes. People used to blanch tomatoes to remove skins but that removes most of the vitamins. Instead, after washing, blend the entire tomato. Leave about 25% in the blender to start blending the second batch so that it’s not as difficult to blend the firm tomatoes. This takes just minutes to fill a large pot.
