Well - it's that time of the year again . . . time to cook up some more Tomato Sauce!
Last year we had an absolute bumper crop from our Tomato plants. As a result, most of them ended up in the freezer so that I could use them in place of 'Tinned Tomato' in recipes like Spaghetti Bolognaise, Lasagne and so on throughout the course of the year AND also so that I could cook them up to make our own homemade Tomato Sauce!
This year, our Tomato plants are once again looking very healthy - the actual fruit is still mostly green because I was a little late in getting them planting BUT with harvesting probably only a couple of weeks away, I need to get busy and use up some more of last years crop from the freezer just incase I need to do a some freezing again this year!
So, today ended up being a day for cooking up a double batch of Tomato Sauce (clicking on the link will take you to a blog post that contains the recipe that I use) . . . the result of todays effort is 15 bottles of Tomato Sauce tucked away in the cupboard WITH still more frozen Tomato in the freezer would you believe! Oh well - at least I've made a little more room in the freezer AND I still won't have to buy any Tomato Sauce! I actually haven't had to buy any now for a little over 12 months!
In other news, we also got stuck into giving our Landcruiser a good cleanout. . . it's been a little neglected of late so now it's now had a nice once over and looks like someone does at least care for it! Quite a productive day I think!
Here's hoping you had a great day!
