Tomato Sauce

I finally finished  dealing with my tomatoes.  Our pantry is now filled with canned/jarred tomato sauce and juice.  We have enough to last for a long time.
Juicing the tomatoes is one great bonding that me and my kids had.  They love doing this kind of stuff at home.
For my tomato sauce, I added some oregano, pepper, salt,  diced onions and peppers.
I borrowed Dad's food strainer and sauce maker and I returned it after we got done with the last batch of tomatoes that we canned.  I bought two dozens of jars with lids this year in addition to what I already have at home.
Juicing tomatoes is a lot of work but it's fulfilling especially if you do it with your kids.

The taste of homemade sauce cannot come from a factory - only from your kitchen! I can almost taste the aroma now...a delicious pasta dinner on a cold night!

Patti said...

Yumm...that pasta sauce will be so nice to have as the winter descends upon us.

I wish I was so inspired..but I'm not.

Hope you and your family are enjoying the weekend.

Such good helpers you have. I used to help mom can but don't remember how at this time. We had canned tomatoes, peaches, and pears.She would freeze vegetables too after blanching them and worked full time. Our Mom's were super women!!
