More Abundance....

We've been experiencing a little more in the Abundant line around here the last few days.
It's February and that means tomato pasta sauce making time.
The last few years have seen us making around 3 cases of tomatoes into sauce- around 45 kgs of tomatoes.  However, I seem to have used a lot last year, so I had to re-stock my sauce reserve as well as enough for regular use.  It would never do around here to run out of tomato sauce for pasta.

And so, 90 kgs of tomatoes, and 85 jars later- here is our effort.
Nothing makes me happier than to see the jars of bottled summer all lined up.
I also made 6 kgs of tomatoes into good old Aussie  tomato sauce for the first time too.  I think I might need to make another couple of batches of that though-  12 bottles won't get us through the next 12 months!


  1. Yum! You know the address, just send the jars via courier...thanks! *ROFLOL* as if!....

  2. This is so impressive, Kerry! I have never preserved a jar of anything in my life. Though I well remember watching my grandmother do it with produce from her garden and orchard - beets, green beans, corn, applesauce, plum butter, and such. It's a lost art among anyone I know here in the US. Sad, isn't it?
