Tomato Sauce

Boy does the kitchen smell good right now! I'm making up all the tomato sauce....I can already tell I will Not have enuf to last us one year. I'll make a note to buy some extras next year....

I brought up this baby from the basement.....my Danesco Food Mill. I got this for my birthday last year, and I just love it!









I had taken the maters out of the freezer the other day, and just let them thaw out in a cooler.....
















I emptied the freezer bags into the Danesco, and started turning the handle....


And turned it, and turned it, well you get the idea....It takes awhile, but it does a wonderful job! These tomatoes weren't skinned or seeded. Using the food mill, they don't have to be, it will take all that stuff right out of there....




This is how it looked after being run thru the Danesco...













I've got two pots of the sauce simmering gently on the stove. I'm going to get it reduced by half. Then I'll start getting my jars ready......








My lastbatch of tomatoes getting put thru....yeah!


(But I'll Definitely need more next year!)













It was snowing pretty much all morning here today....once it stopped, the Gman said he was going to go hunting - he was out for a few hours, but didn't get a deer....

The sauce looks great! I have two old food mills in the same shape, one two quart and one 3 cup. They're invaluable. It will still be a while before I move them to the basement for storage. Great pieces of kitchen equipment.

Hi Robins....I just love that food mill, it is awesome! I am already trying to think of a way to grow More tomatoes next year....I can't squeeze any more into the greenhouses, so am not sure. Maybe I will try one of those hoop tunnels?
