That is the result of our work on Saturday: Tomato sauce. We preserved 36 litres...
And that is the story behind it:
|Delivery of 64 kgs tomatoes and some basil leaves|
|Washing and getting them ready for...|
|cutting... thank you hubby!|
|then boiling them till they have thickened and become a smooth sauce|
|washing the jars and adding the basil leaves|
|adding the sauce to the jars with a laddle (hubby did that)|
|adding a lid and letting the sauce cool upside down for the vacuum|
|in between the cooks needed something to strengthen them|
Hubby and I love to have these jars in our pantry. We always say that we have preserved the sun and when days are getting cooler or in winter time when it is really cold it is nice to think one is eating some sunshine. By the way: The first sauce we have already tasted with some guests yesterday:
So - you sunshines out there - have a great Monday!
