Today was a busy morning. I got out the crock pot and my new Back to Basics Strainer and made my first homemade spaghetti sauce. Turns out I underestimated how many tomatoes it would take to make a good-sized pot of sauce. The strainer works beautifully. If I only used one type of tomato it would have made seed saving quite easy. Instead, I used a combination of tomatoes. Opalkas. A Cherokee Green. Sandul Moldovans. A Cowlick Brandywine. Tossed in some chopped up onions and green peppers, garlic cloves, seasoning, and tomato paste. It is simmering in a small crockpot right now. I think I will brown some ground beef and add it in as well. I can't wait to try my very first taste of homemade spaghetti sauce.
