2013 Heirloom Tomatoes - Home Grown Veges

Every summer, I wonder what's growing this year in my brother's vege garden.  This year, he had a bumper corps of heirloom tomatoes.   They are so unbelievably delicious, so tasty, so tomato!   I wish they stop those 'hot house' tomatoes that are so taste less! 

 When you have the real thing, you don't need to roast or blanch the tomatoes to peel it.
You can just use a nice sharp pairing knife and peeeeel!
TIP:  How to save an opened canned tomato paste.
 Save the extra canned tomato paste in  freezer bag.  Scoop a Tablespoon and drop in the bag.  Then, freeze.  Take the portion you need the next time.
Do the same for the fresh ginger.  Peel them, chop them, slice them, dice them, and freeze them.

 My fresh home made tomato sauce.  I can see why women's job is never done in the old days.  They got to can and preserve all the produces and fruits at their peak to prevent waste.
