What to do when your Garden Tomatoes are bursting off the vine.

Every year we plant tomatoes and hope for the best. Some years we have a bounty of them, however, some years we don't have any success, no matter how much we water, feed and baby them.

We do have some very loving friends who own a farm and they always make sure that we have plenty of tomatoes.

To Can or Not to Can... that is the question!

We have canned tomatoes for decades. And I am good and tired of all that work. So this year I decided to simplify my life with a quick and easy way to store homemade tomato sauce. It really works for me.

My process grinds up the seeds and skins. You don't even know that they are in there! I used to remove the skins and seeds and cook down the sauce and then process in a water bath method. Well, that was alright for my younger years but now I can't stand on my feet that long, anymore.

Simplify and Get Off your Feet.

I know that I don't want to stop making my own, homemade tomato sauce, unless I can't get anymore free tomatoes. Or if tomatoes sell for $30.00 a pound at the market. That would surely make me stop making my own sauce. I don't think I can make myself buy a jar of ready made tomato sauce.

Anyway, my method is fast and gets me off my feet. So if you want to have your own, homemade, fresh tomato sauce for now or frozen for the winter months, then please try my recipe. I want you to get off your feet and rest up for other important events in your life.

Pizza or Pasta...

That's right, this recipe is great for making homemade pizza or pasta dishes of all kinds. I never, never use garlic in my sauce. It can make the sauce bitter. It's alright to add some freshly grated garlic to your pasta dishes after you plate your meal, if you really love the taste of garlic... just don't saute' any garlic into my recipe.

There's only my husband and myself in our household. I only use one pint of sauce a week. Half for a pasta dish and the other half for Sunday night Pizza. I'm always ready for my husbands favorite line..."How about Pizza tonight?"

My husband works too hard for us to through out $15.00 on a delivered Pizza. (Sorry Pizza Man) That's why I'm ready to deliver for my husband... In a few minutes I can whip up some dough, grate some mozzarella and before he can get the words out of his mouth, I can have a pizza in the oven.

Until we Meet again... Francesca27
