We now have our first large haul of tomatoes. It's a mix of pink brandywine, moneymaker and beefsteak. It was an absolute joy to pick them as they're all lovely big tomatoes. Last year I planted a real mixter maxter but in the end they were almost all small varieties and took eons to pick. A mistake you only make once. I think I will plant a cherry again next year, just because they are so nice in salads, but I'm glad to have only humungous toms this year.
We were thinking about making some tomato sauce but didn't manage to find a simple recipe, they were all very detailed! So if anyone has a simple tomato sauce recipe and is willing to part with it we'll be very grateful.
We ended up going for good old faithful passata. We do a simple passata
It freezes and you can use it as a base for pasta sauces or reduce down for pizza topping, or whatever else you fancy.
