Tomato season seems so long gone, but believe it or not-- my friend Jayne, had a 5 gallon bucket of ripe and juicy tomatoes that begged to be turned into salsa!
We decided on a two step process. Last night, peel and core tomatoes pack into ice cream buckets then tonight we’ll assemble salsa and water bath can. So exciting!
It was nice to have red tomatoes, because mine all looked like this:
Eric pulled the last bucket of green tomatoes off the vine just recently.
We made a tangy and slightly sweet, green tomato sauce for freezing. It was so good. A great base to a tomato bisque soup. Not much of a recipe about 1 cup tomato sauce, 1 cup whole milk, 1 cup chicken stock, and 1/4 cup plain yogurt. Simmer but not boil. Flavor with favorite spices. So delicious!
Here is the conversation after making homemade pizza. Yummy goodness that my children would not touch. The conversation goes as follows:
Me: But it’s pizza
Izzo: It has things (pronounced sings) on it.
Me: What things?
Izzo: Veggies. Yuck.
For the record edamame is on her top five things she loves to eat.
