I love how nicely my plants grow in August. These late planted Mammoth sunflowers are now between 6' and 9' tall and are providing my hens with some nice late afternoon shade.
I have been canning like a mad woman.
and now tomatoes... I tried a "new to me" recipe for pizza sauce that cuts tomato processing time in half AND really accentuates the tomato flavor via oven roasting.
There is no skinning involved either and it thickens much quicker. The roasting really helps dehydrate the tomatoes.You just roast, puree, and can! You can see this recipe HERE from the wonderful website Simple Bites. The author offers three methods to prepare the tomatoes and a few of her family recipes for the pizza sauce. I chose method #3 to prepare the tomatoes and her cousin Amber's sauce recipe though I added a bit of cinnamon to mine too. My husband liked it so much that he made himself a plate full of mini pizzas today for lunch with a jar from this first batch. it's good stuff! Well, now you know what I've been doing. It's YOUR turn to link up and share what you have been doing this week around your homestead. Thanks for your participation and support.
Have a GREAT week!
