Pomodoro Sunday

Last spring I thought I would have a go a making some passata (base tomato sauce used in everything from pasta sauce, caseroles, stews etc).

We ventured to our local food market and picked up 20kg’s of end of season tomatos. Where upon I proceeded to wash, steam and pulp my tomatos into submission.

I added in garlic, basil, oregano and a few bay leaves and let the mixture simmer down to a sauce consistency. All the while my sauce bottles were being sterilized in the oven.

The only downside to this process was that I really didn’t make enough to get through winter. However, spring is just around the corner so I’ll be sure to double up this year.
