Recently I put out the word to my neighbors via a neighborhood Facebook page that I’m interested in gleaning any extra yard produce if they weren’t using it. I got a pretty nice response, the best being from a neighbor who had tomatoes among other things. There were at least 4 different types from what I could tell. I picked to my heart’s content and took home a bucketful of ripe organic tomatoes. So what did I do? I made sauce, of course.
I threw some herbs from the garden, some locally sourced garlic, sea salt a pinch of sugar and evoo into the pot along with the beautifully colored orange and red tomatoes. I simmered the mix for the day and when it was done i blended it with a stick blender which also removes all the tomato skins! I’ll use this awesomesauce to make eggplant chicken melts for my family for dinner tonight.
Y U M.
