For decades, passata (commonly known as tomato sauce) has been produced in homes all around the world. Some people grow their own fruit, while others scamper around markets trying to find the ripest tomatoes for this year’s batch of sauce making. Nothing you buy in your local supermarket can compare to the freshest flavours of ripened fruit, squeezed of every last bit of pulp, no added preservatives, just a full natural flavour.
Make litres or simply a small amount for yourself. Get your neighbours involved, invite a few friends or family around to help (there will be dishes to clean) and enjoy the Italian experience.
Tomatoes are in season for only a short time, but your sauce can last you the entire year if made properly – without adding any preservatives!
