I'm finally saying goodbye to summer, which is not so easy to do, knowing that fall is here and that soon will be winter and it is all bringing bad weather and small possibility to go outside to play and walk with kids or just even enjoy the weather/time....
But, each season is bringing it's good things, right??? Hmmmm, one of these is preparing the food for that season. That is sooooo
Why? Well, to be sure that they-especially kids are eating something free of toxins, preservatives, colorants and all those non healthy things that can be usually found in the food offered from big manufactures etc.
So, a few weeks ago, my hubby and I decided to prepare some tomato sauce, known in our house like salsa di pomodoro. That's like a MUST in italian kitchen and almost each meal has a bit of it;)
So here is the procedure of how we did it:
washing the tomatoes
cutting the tomatoes and grinding them with the machine
preparing to cook it, adding salt, sugar, basil leaves and onion
after about 2 hours of stirring and mixing on the mild flame this is how it will look like, ready to be littered into the bottles
bottles are placed in the Owen(firstly washed) at 160 degrees for about 10, 15 minutes
lids are "cooked"-sterilized in the boiling water
after filling the bottles with the sauce, you need to securely close the bottles
place them in some warm place-I just cover them all over with some blanket and let them stay till the morning
before placing them to some storing place, control the lids-if they did the vacuum thing;)
Done!!!!!Now you can prepare all those yummy tasty meals!!!!
I will post next how to prepare home made pasta and simple and tasty pasta con salsa di pomodoro-like in that plate above, so stay tuned;)
