4 Tsp. olive oil
fresh rosemary
2 Tsp. Pizza or pasta herbs

(depends on your taste) 

Put tomatoes for 1 minute in boiling water and take skin off. Cut onions and garlic and fry for 2 minutes in the hot olive oil. Add sugar and fry another 2 minutes Then add the tomato puree and fry at low heat another 3 minutes . Please cut all the peeled tomatoes in little cubes and add to the onion, garlic mix in the cooking pot. It is neccessary to take a very big pot!!. Now you put in herbs, fresh rosemary, pasta herbs and salt and pepper. After 1 hour cooking at low heat add the balsamic vinegar and hot chilli powder or fresh chilli if you like. 
Please cook again for another 2-3 hours while stirring frequently. 

After the cooking time it will smell great. Fill the hot tomato sauce into jars und put on lid straight away and let them get cold upside down. 

You can also puree the sauce, if you do not like the little pieces in it.

You can keep the jars 2-3 months in a cool dark place.

Cover with the cut ginger slices and the rosemary and the garlic as well as a few drops of olive oil and put in oven for 10 minutes at a medium temperature.
