As we head into the tail end of September, the harvest continues going strong. Today, I harvested a good amount of Italian sauce tomatoes and found enough additional produce and seasonings to make a batch of tomato sauce. Above, you can see the celery, carrots, peppers (sweet and hot), basil, oregano, onions, and garlic that I added to the sauce. I used my two favorite purchases this season, the Roma food strainer and the All-American pressure canner to get this job done. Both products are great, but I can’t say enough about the food strainer. It is so much easier than hand processing the tomatoes. It is also great for making applesauce.
And here is the completed sauce, all canned and ready to store. It is quite delicious if I do say so myself.
