tomato sauce weekend


tomato sauceThis picture proves that despite strange and weird weather, overall, the tomato harvest was better this year than last.  Twice as much sauce when all was said and done, and there are still tomatoes ripening on the vines!  Last year had a total of 5 containers of frozen tomatoes which yielded (and I didn’t note the exact quantity!!), about 9 pints of sauce (4.5quarts).  This year, had 5 full quarts of plain marinara, and 6 pints of meat sauce (only 5 in the photo – one jar is a pint and a half, and the other half pint just went into the fridge to be used with lunch today).  Tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, a touch of balsamic vinegar and a touch of lemon juice, oregano, sage, basil, and for the meat sauce, some fresh ground pork.
