Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes
As if we do not have enough work to do keeping up with our own produce our lovely neighbours Annunciata and Bruno presented us with this lot the other day!
They grow a tremendous number of tomatoes and have recently bottled 65kg, around 120 jars to see the family through the winter. The bottling is still done in a very old fashioned and traditional way locally, outside in an old drum over a fire, unfortunately I did not get the chance to take a photo, maybe next year.
We have now turned this lot into a tomato sauce using a receipe from Delia Smith.
