Aromatic

On Saturday, the Pres canned what he calls "sauce."  It is really like a tomato base that we use when we make tomato sauce as the only spices that go in it are whole basil leaves.  He'd picked a five and a three gallon bucket of those red ripe juicy tomatoes and cleaned them all while I worked inside. 

I didn't even stick my head out into the garage until around eleven.  Asking him if he could use a hand, he told me to wait about twenty more minutes.

That was just enough time for me to gobble up a nice tomato sandwich with lots of mayonnaise (yep...the full fat kind!).

We got ten quarts and one pint on this batch.  Next week, we'll do another.

That Pres. is an alright guy. That is exactly the way I do my tomato sauce except I add a teaspoon of minced garlic to each quart. This stuff can be used for anything. I'm having a tomato sandwich (on toast) with lots of mayo for breakfast. Yum!
