Wednesday: canning and take out?
Thursday: roasted Heirloom Tomato sauce over pasta
Given a surplus of Heirloom tomatoes available through our CSA, we're purchasing an extra ten pounds and I'm planning on my first attempt at canning tomato sauce. Typically, I'd tend to use a Roma or other paste tomato for sauce, but this recipe seems appealing enough to give it a try with heirlooms. It will be interesting to see how many pints I can get out of 10+ pounds of tomatoes. Probably fewer than I'd like, but it will still be fun to have some jars of homemade sauce on the shelf for future pizzas and pastas!
How much sauce will this make?This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name by Death Cab for Cutie.
