Time to Tomato
Time is runing out
The guys at Dirty Girl Produce at San Francisco's Farmers' Market last week told me there are only a couple of weeks of their Early Girl tomatoes left. They often sell 20lb sauce boxes of tomatoes for just $20. I put these in a large pot, skins and all, and simmer for about an hour before cooling overnight, running through a food mill to lose the skins and then freezing in two cup batches. This box yielded 17 x 2 cup bags of tomato pulp which I can use for pasta sauces, chicken tikka masalas and soups over the next 8 months or so, until tomatoes come back into season again.
