Just put these home grown tomatoes in the oven to slow roast for 2 hours (at 250F) with some EVOO, kosher salt, pepper, Tuscan seasonings, and whole garlic cloves. They will soon become delicious tomato sauce! 🙂 House smells delicious, update to come!
So here’s the roasted tomato goodness when it came out of the oven. I left the garlic in its’ peel and squeezed it out when it was done cooking.
Then I dropped the whole mess, tomatoes, garlic, spices, and especially the EVOO into my Kitchen Aid bowl and puréed the daylights out of it with my immersion blender (Best. Kitchen. Gadget. Ever.)
Here’s the final tomatoey, garlicky, puréed goodness….
In a Mason jar, ready for canning and to be the base of a super-delicious sauce!
PS: An entire head of garlic was used in this extravaganza.
