Sauce Time

With all this heat, my tomato plants have pushed to ripen their fruit.  Since i have 6 healthy plants, that makes for a glut of delicious heirloom tomatoes.

I’ll cook it (and the other few pounds still on the vine) down with tons of garden garlic and basil, then run it through the food mill to get the skins out.  I planted a combination of acidic and paste tomatoes, making for a more balanced sauce and will hopefully freeze a few quarts for the winter.
