Passata pics as promised.
Three days worth of tomatoes really piles up. More passata this morning.
Here we go!

Chop garlic and onion. I chopped 5 cloves and one large onion. You can really do this to taste.

Add these to large pot and cook gently in butter for about 5-10 mins

Then wash and cut in half about a gazillion tomatoes and add these to the pot. Simmer on a low heat for an hour or so till all cooked down.
 I'll be back once it's cooked down to post mouli-ing pics - bet you can't wait!

All boiled down and getting moulied. I made a mistake though - I simmered the tomatoes with the lid on, so when I was putting them through the mouli it was much thinner than when lloyd did it. So after they were all sieved through I put them back onto the cooker top to boil down a bit to make it thicker! Sort of cheating really. 
the small pot is for tonights pizza topping, so it got reduced down a lot more, the rest will go into freezer bags. I'm thinking we may make it to winter this year!

Ok I am now tomato-ed out - no more I promise.
