You can tell I was excited, I took a picture of the tomatoes with a wee house! Anyway, on Sunday I decided to use my fancy tomatoes to make a pasta sauce. I made a very simple sauce: tomatoes, basil, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, garlic....and sauteed some mushrooms for the top while the whole wheat pasta was boiling. It came out amazing:
Doesn't it look yummy? The tomatoes were really amazing, nothing like store bought canned tomatoes, and they were the key to this delicious sauce. Thank you Flannery!
In related news, I've decided that this is going to be the year that I learn how to can food. I've been itching to learn how to make and can jams, preserves, salsas, and more for years but I think I've been a bit afraid that I'd do something wrong and kill myself :) But I got a book that seems like a great guide, The Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving. Do any of you guys can food?
