Default Tomatoes


I took this photo when I started making tomato sauce I am proud to say that I made sauce out of 24kg of fresh tomatoes I am glad that is over!
In this time of year, the market is full of fresh and cheap tomatoes and people buy huge amounts in order to make sauce and store it for the winter! Their price is very low 20-30 eurocents/kilo so everyone left the market carrying 10-50kg of tomatoes!
Are people in your countries doing that every year?
Rick these tomatoes are Roma mutation

Wow that's a lot of chopping! I love tomato based foods. I've tried to make the sauce from search with fresh tomatoes a couple of times but there always seems to be something missing. Do you have a recipe to share at all?
I have no doubt you're tired after all that chopping

Yes.. I can say that this procedure was tiring, my hands turned red for a bit
The most important thing is that tomatoes have to be at their best and mature enough. The mutation is not so important.
In my opinion, putting the sauce in the freezer is the best thing to preserve them fresh just like when you chopped them. I cut them into pieces and then put them in the food processor. Then I take small food plastic bags or small bowls (to create small portions enough for a meal) ,put the tomato puree inside them and then to the freezer.
In the meanwhile, I ran out of bags and bowls so I put sauce in jars. But first I had to sterilize the jars (by boiling them in a big pot for a bit), boil the sauce with salt and sugar, then fill the jars and wait until they cool down. Before closing the jars, you have to add some olive oil. Tiring procedure, huh?

Wow, Despina, those are a lot of tomatoes! Looks like you'll definitely have a sizable stockpile for the winter

Nice job!

I think she has an industrial grade freezer devoted entirely to tomato sauce

I guess she has a storage room! I wish I had a big freezer!

Last batch of tomato sauce I made was about the same size. I know your pain but it's so yum, isn't it? My big freezer died a couple of years ago so I jarred it all and it was gone within 3 months.

The same thing happens every year with all the jams I make. Halfway though the winter we're also out of all chutneys and compotes.

This year I am building a secret cabinet in our garage and storing all my preserves in there. There will be extra locks on it and maybe even a hidden cam...

Yes- I made cherry jam on June and it was gone in a week :O Hahaha hidden cam for what? to discover who's eating them?
I am planning to make pear and plum jam now. One year our trees produced so many fruit that we wouldn't be able to eat them all fresh - I took 4kg of plums and made jams! We used to be compot fans but now nobody eats them!
Yes, tomato sauce is delicious and so much better than these ones on the market with all the preservatives and stuff! And many of the jars have different tastes, because I added onion, garlic and mint to several of them
