I took that bucket of tomatoes I picked yesterday, and went out to get some more this morning.
I've decided to pull up the Super Sauces... they are just too firm and meaty for my liking, and taking forever to ripen... and frankly, I have enough tomato products in our freezer for the winter for just Keith and me.
These are a mixture of Gypsy and Abu Rawan, the cracked ones are the Abus... they almost all cracked... and they have the distinctive green "cap", of the one on the right.
That's a Gypsy second from right in the lower row.
Sweet tomato goodness... and yes, there are some Super Sauce slices in this bowl.
As you will note, I do NOT remove my skins. They go in the blender this way.
Crummy blender picture, but you get it, I'm sure.
Those tomatoes became this pot of tomatoey goodness.
I used Mrs. Wages Italian sauce blend, and a quarter cup of sugar. Boiled, then simmered for 25 minutes.
Made this much.... perfect for Keith and me. I am going to keep using these smaller containers. You see a larger one on the right... I'll use this sauce first. The other three are going into the deep freeze this afternoon to be used during the winter. These little containers hold just the right amount for one dinner helping for us, with no waste. Perfect!
Those are some of our pears marching along on the counter behind the sauce.
I wish my counters looked like those on Pinterest, but what the hey?
We live here.
