Homemade tomato sauce

Recently i went o france for a short trip and as usual i checked the fridge to empty it from perishable products but totally forgot the tomatoes. I came back home after a few days and found a box of  really riped tomatoes that i didnt want to trow away as i hate waste . So i got a few groceries and cooked an amazing tomato sauce that i preserved into 6 jars for the winter .
