Shelf Reliance THRIVE Tomato Powder

Shelf Reliance Tomato Powder is a must for any kitchen.  With a shelf life of 8 years unopened and 18 months after opening you don’t have to worry about running out of tomato sauce or throwing out expired sauce.  I can’t tell you how many times I have used a 1/4 cup of sauce for a recipe, planning to use the rest of the jar later, and end up tossing it out because I didn’t get around to using it.  
I love being able to make my own homemade tomato sauce and being able to make just enough for the recipe I am cooking.  The color of the tomato powder is amazing and the only ingredient is tomato,  no wonder it smells so good!  Below is my recipe for a traditional spaghetti sauce.  You can also use tomato powder to make soup, chili, marinara, pizzas, beef stew, casseroles and more.

Shelf Reliance Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
THRIVE Spaghetti Sauce:
1/2 Cup THRIVE Tomato Powder
1 1/2 Cups water
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Garlic
1 teaspoon Basil
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1 pinch Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
Combine tomato powder and water in a medium sized bowl.  Once mixed, add in dry ingredients with the baking soda last.  I add the baking soda to reduce the acidity of the tomatoes.  If you like the more crisp taste you can omit the baking soda.  Don’t worry about the sauce foaming or getting a little lighter when you add the baking soda, it will settle down.
