Saving the abundance

The other day someone gave hubby five of these bags full of cherry tomatoes 
But he forgot and left them in the car 
They were too ripe for salad but perfect for sauce 

So into a big pot I cut up two large onions, one sad green capsicum and half a sad red capsicum 
and added all the chopped tomatoes 
They only needed to soften not over cook as I will use them in the slow cooker over winter 
When they were done I added some herbs from the garden. Some Greek basil. Just scrapped the leaves off and into the pot and the heat wilted them 
When cool into the tubs and into the freezer 
No waste and ready to add to whatever I'm making in the crock pot 
Got to love friends with abundant vegetables 
See ya xxx


  1. Sounds like an excellent idea. Bless your friends!

  2. Basil and tomatoes what a combo.
    Coffee is on

  3. Perfect sauce with that greek basil. My traditional greek person would agree 100% lol. Kalo koritsi
