Home made Passata

Today I would like to share with you this tasty Home-made Passata that I have made myself. It tastes good, and is very rich in colour. All you have to do when you add this Home-made Passata to your dish, is add garlic or maybe an extra herb should you wish to increase the flavour.

As I grow my own tomatoes, I always end up with too many in my kitchen, and you can only eat so many a day or in a dish or in a salad. I always grow more than I need, but this time my next door neighbour went away and of course, as we are all  good neighbours, I looked after his tomatoes, so you know what happened then – even more tomatoes!

The only way to deal with them, is to dry them, pickle them, purée them or preserve them or anything else, as long as you make use of them.To be honest, they come in very handy in the winter when I make pasta or stew. Although I used 3 kilos, I only ended up with 4 jars. You can make this any time of the year as long as you buy your tomatoes when they are very ripe and low in price.

Let’s see how this sauce is made:
