I Pomodori | Keeping traditions through Generations

     Every year, we buy bushels of tomatoes and begin the process of i pomodori. We wash, cut, fill, and squish the tomatoes in jars and then cook them for hours in a large saucepan over a flame outside. 

     For me, it's really special because I grew up with the women in my family surrounding a table and recounting stories and laughing as we cut the tomatoes for hours. That first bowl of pasta with fresh tomato sauce is unlike anything else. And so I'd like to keep this tradition through the years and continue it with my future children and grandchildren someday. Here a few photos I took this year!
