Lazy Tomato Sauce for Freezing

(from Jill Melton, editor at Edible nashville)

The key is to slow simmer it, reducing down the juices to a rich, sumptuous sauce. It’s what I call a lazy, sauce—as I don’t even peel the tomatoes. I hack out any bad spots with a knife, toss the rest in a large stockpot or saucepan, and crush with my hands until it’s a soupy mess. The pot is set over medium heat to come to a boil, then lowered, at which point it happily simmers away.
Once the sauce is thick, I crush a couple garlic cloves into it, splash with vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and slivers of fresh basil. Sometimes I add a dash or olive oil, sometimes not. Your call. It’s then spooned into jars, given to friends or stashed into the freezer.

Core tomatoes, toss in stockpot or large saucepan. Crush with hands. Place pot over medium heat until sauce is boiling. Lower heat and simmer for 3-5 hours or until sauce is chunky and thick. Add remaining ingredients. Spoon into jars and freeze.

Dawson Local Harvest:  A Berry Merry July!

Dawson Local Harvest for July 20th

A Berry Merry July!


July is Berry Time, and The Market has them, with all-natural fresh-picked Blueberries and Blackberries from the Parking Lot Patches at LEILANI’S! You’ll see half-pint containers of both Berries on The Market this week. Don’t wait on these, as they’ll only be around 3-4 weeks. BTW The Market has kitchen essentials Garlic and Onions, White and Purple available now. And of course we’re loaded with Tomatoes, both “regular” and heirloom.

Want to make something different this week? Here’s an idea. Ground Lamb from BRAMBERI FARMS is perfect for Irish Shepherd’s Pie! It’s easy! Start with Ground Lamb, brown with onions, and make a gravy. Add 4-8 oz. of corn and green peas, mix all that together (you want enough gravy to cover the veggies). Put this mix in a baking bowl, layer mashed potatoes on top, and bake at 375 until gravy bubbles through. Ground Lamb is also essential for Greek dishes like Mousakai and Pastitsio, and you can use it as a different taste on Pizza. In the Meat, Pasture-fed section.

Make Smoothies delicious with Coconut Kefir from CULTURED TRADITIONS. It’s $9.00 for a full 16 oz. pint, or just over $1 per 2 oz. serving. 2 oz. is a perfect addition to flavor and “smooth out” disparate flavors for tasty healthy Smoothies. Unflavored or with light Maple Syrup, and did we mention loaded with probiotics? Great with granola too! In the Fermented / Probiotic section.


REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.
