Tomato Sauce

I'm kicking myself as I didn't think to take a photo of all 6 kilo of tomatoes I was given yesterday from a friend. The closest I have come to home grown tomatoes this season, my plants are not producing much fruit. To the stage I have given up on them, so when my friend called, I said thank you and yes to the tomatoes right away.

These few left over tomatoes will be not wasted, into the freezer they will go for use in the winter months.

4.5 kilo of tomatoes, 680 grams of apples and onion won't fit into the largest saucepan I had in the house. So to start off I had to use 2 saucepans.

Once the cooking had reduced the volume size into the biggest pot and away went the cooking.

Just about ready for the ezy-sauce, sugar and salt.

All cooked and ready for the stick mixer to blend to a smooth mixture. If you use a stick mixer, just watch the wrist action...... sauce can splash over the wall near the stove. eek This will result in rude words and extra cleaning up after the sauce is bottled. mrgreen

All finished and bottled. The jar at the front is for our friend who gave us the tomatoes. She's not a big sauce eater and said only a small jar would be enough for her.

The recipe can be found here.
