Just Finished A Batch of Pear Tomato And Cayenne Pepper Spaghetti Sauce
Well I picked the rest of the veggies from our vegetable garden and brought them in the house to finish ripening.
I was going to go out and clear any remaining weeds and over ripened veggies but it was too drizzly out so I thought I would spend some time making a batch of spaghetti sauce.
All that will be needed is a bit of hamburger and some pasta.
16 Cups of Pear Tomatoes
I measured eight cups of yellow pear tomatoes for the batch and still have about the same amount left. I’ll make another batch later this week once the rest of the tomatoes I picked ripen a bit more.
I picked all the cayenne, bell and banana peppers we had left in the garden and found we had a whole lot more than I thought we did, especially the cayenne peppers. I will dry the cayenne peppers and crush them for later use.
So I washed the tomatoes and picked out any that were over ripe, to the point of rotting, and tossed them into the compost bin out by the vegetable garden. I only cleaned and halved eight cups.
The recipe said to peel them but I think that’s a waste of great flavour. By cutting each tomato in half the skins are small enough to leave in the batch.
I put the eight cups of tomatoes in a non-reactive pot and then added a couple of small onions I chopped into 1/4” pieces. I also chopped some bell peppers into a dice and finely diced a couple of ripe cayenne peppers.
I cooked that mix down into a sauce and then added a few basil leaves from our indoor herb garden and cooked it for a few more minutes.
The batch of spaghetti sauce produces two quart jars of sauce as you can see in the picture at the top of the post.
