Time to get Saucy!
I’m always fairly saucy as most of my friends will a test but today I’m talking about saucing tomatoes!
For most of you, tomato season is either well under way or maybe even drawing to a close but for us here in Northern Ontario our gardens are teaming with plump ripe tomatoes. Plain tomato sauce is a staple in our home and one of the musts on my canning list each year. I was gratefully gifted about 50lbs of Roma tomatoes from my friends garden and spent the better part of two days turning them into sauce and putting it in jars. These were the BEST Romas I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and it was a challenge for me not to constantly dip my spoon into the bubbling liquid for a quick taste. They were a wonderful red colour, picked perfection, and extremely sweet tasting with a beautiful firm texture. It’s wonderful to be able to pick, can, and jar in the same day. It’s a great way to guarantee the greatest quality in each jar.
The recipe we follow is simple and the same from one year to the next. You can find our recipe here.
