#3: Homemade Tomato Sauce

Since tomatoes only comes once a year, it’s worth the time in the kitchen.DSC_0095 Score the Tomatoes (I started with about 30 perfectly imperfect ones).DSC_0102 Pop them into a pot of boiling water for 1 minute-ish. Look at those beautiful colors.DSC_0097Spoon them outDSC_0096 Plop them right into a pot of ice cold water for 1 minute-ishDSC_0100 The skin will peel right off! Put in separate bowl. Feed to chickens later?DSC_0099Give the Tomato to your child. Have them squeeze out the juice and seeds. Oh, they’ll like this part! You now have three bowls: skin, tomatoes, juice and seeds. DSC_0113Now, add Olive Oil to a pan and saute Carrots, Onion, and Garlic. Add Salt and Pepper. The kitchen will smell divine by now. Our children are more likely to eat sauce that isn’t chunky so we put our sauteed deliciousness and Tomatoes into the Vitamix for 20 seconds. Done.DSC_0128Simmer that sauce for a few hours until it’s no longer watery. Add Basil and Oregano and 1 Tablespoon Sugar.

So. So. Good.

Use for pasta, lasagna, or store in the freezer for those cold winter nights.

#4: Freshly Squeezed Tomato JuiceDSC_0116All the juice and seeds couldn’t go to waste! We added some Salt, Pepper, and Celery and gave it a whirl in the Vitamix. Done.DSC_0123And have been guzzling for days.

May the tomato force be with you.

Happy Weekend. xo.

    Yummy! I noted that your most frequently used adverb is “generously.” Gotta love mozzarella. I’m looking for a good homemade tomato sauce, sans the homegrown tomatoes. Got any suggestions?
