Directions

Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. Sauté onions until soft and translucent. Add garlic and Thai chilies and sauté for about 1 minute (do not brown as garlic will become bitter). Add sugar, basil, sage and thyme; continue to cook for another 3 minutes. Crush canned tomatoes; add tomatoes and juice to saucepan. Bring to a boil, then decrease the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally and skimming off any impurities that rise to the surface. To finish, stir in extra-virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Step 2

Can be used right away. Will keep in the refrigerator for 4 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Step 3

Makes about 3 cups.
