Non traditional tomato sauce

2년 전

Hi folks!

It’s starting to feel like Autumn here in Boston and what better to start that with some cooking?

Today we made a delicious tomato sauce but certainly not one that I’ve seen before. We are a member of a local CSA (community supported agriculture) and got a delicious crop of yellow tomatoes. If you’ve never heard of a CSA before or participated I recommend it highly! You pay a local farm in advance, usually before the summer picking season, and they give you a share of their crops. It’s broken down into a full share, half share and in our case a quarter share. These offer families a great option according to their size and appetite. Some farms offer meat and egg inclusion but not in ours which is ok since we are mostly vegetarian. Here are some pictures from the various shares we’ve gotten this summer.

Here are the tomatoes we’ve gotten this week:

The farm gives great shares and has the opportunity to put back items you don’t want. We’ve put back some but they leave a box out if extras or things people don’t usually want in their shares such as hot peppers. You put the ones you don’t want in it and take what you want so it’s a great way to allow people to exchange!

Onto our tomato sauce!

We took the yellow tomatoes and figured why not make a sauce out of them?

We let them boil for a while and then peeled the skins off. Some people don’t peel them but we haven’t made a from tomato scratch sauce before, we usually use already peeled tomatoes from a box (not a can thankfully!) We then added some fresh basil, freshly cracked pepper and freshly ground pink salt. Instead of adding sugar like a lot of people do we go the more natural route and add a carrot! Carrots add a great sweetness to it and keep the sauce a lot healthier than by adding sugar. Plus a bonus I enjoy eating the carrot when it’s all done!
It’s certainly a non traditional sauce but it’s delicious!

Cool thanks! Trying to post all the ideas I have.

Yes, my boy getting his post on for once now I get to be the comment whore! I started reading the post and after the first line things changed because I started reading it with a Boston accent in my head. I have this trick where I say "Car Keys" several times and until it sounds like Khakis and I'm good to go

Looks good but Yellow Tomatos look wierd AF, does it taste the same? Whats the difference?

Lol I’m trying to post more just no time. I have several posts queued up just gotta write them.

Thanks for the upvote! Don’t spend money on this one but did you check out my crypto post the other day? https://steemit.com/crypto/@cmplxty/noia-network-decentralized-alternative-to-content-delivery

The tomato sauce was wicked good! I love a good tomato sauce; sharp tomato taste, slightly acidic and an earthy flavor. This one was good it was a much milder tomato flavor so it didn’t over power the food you’re eating with it which for me was a nice ravioli. These tomatoes are a bit sweeter and less of a tomato flavor.

Did you drop ya car keys after parking your car in Harvard yard? Lol we’ve heard it all!

No I havn't but ill check it out in a bit.

Must make for a really interesting dish, we should start to get used to more earthy flavours we've been hopped up on that artificial and GMO flavours for too long.

Lol thats the line, how to become Bostonified in seconds!
