We are growing a ton of tomatoes in the garden and I would like to use some to make homemade spaghetti sauce. If we make some batches to can is there anything extra I need to do the sauce to preserve it?
 
You may have to pressure can it. I know this sounds odd, but depending on what you are adding this may be required. I know the Blue Book can help you with this and this is what I would use to help you out.

Are you talking about canning the sauce or the tomatoes? My mom makes her sauce then freezes it in plastic containers. I`m thinking of doing the same thing since it`s only me and my husband at home now.

I don't get the question. There are several things you need if you are making spaghetti sauce - not just tomatoes. You would want to can them in a canner or boil it on the stove and put into hot jars. I guess I don't understand your question.
