When growing your own produce you do need to be prepared to spend some time processing the excess. Today was one of those days.
Yesterday I picked 5kg of cherry tomatoes. I washed, de-stalked and sorted them.
I roasted the ripest 3kg of them in the oven at 120C for about an hour.
This is the 2 trays as I put them into the oven.
Once the tomatoes were roasted I transferred them to the high-speed blender and blitzed them thoroughly. Whilst not completely smooth, I had created a rich tomato puree.
I filled ice cube trays with the puree.
Ready to go in the freezer.
Once they are frozen I will transfer the cubes into a bag for easy storage. It will be a simple matter of adding a cube or two when preparing various meals.
