The Season of Tomatoes

     When I was a little girl I always loved being part of the fun of the annual tomato-sauce making season. My Nonna, Mom, and Aunts would gather around a large table and cut hundreds of tomatoes to be then placed in jars. It would be a day long extravaganza of cutting, placing in jars, cooking in a huge pot, and telling stories. When I was younger I would just love spending the entire day playing with my cousins without having to leave early. As I got older, I got the privilege to join everyone in on the fun. The process is long and tedious, but nothing quite beats the taste of homemade tomato sauce. Here are a few photos I took this weekend of our tomato filled day. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
