Chilebrown at home

Saturday, July 26, 2008


My tomatoes are coming in like gangbusters. It is time to make pizza sauce. I will canvas the garden for all the ingredients. I have all the herbs needed and all the vegetables. The only store bought product will be the tomato paste and bacon. Paul Bertoli has a recipe for tomato paste. It is only a matter of time before I make my own. I just want to tell you how good it smells in the Chilebrown Kitchen. I like to take the skins off of the tomatoes. It only involves boiling a pot of water and blanching them. You need to cut the stem off and X the bottom. Rinse and squeeze the round orbits of summer.The skin will slide right off. Chop and your ready.

Chilebrown's Pizza Sauce

  1. 6 tomatoes (blanched,peeled, sqouzen, and chopped)

  2. 1 tablespoon of tomato paste

  3. 1 teaspoon of sugar (Honey)

  4. 1 teaspoon of salt

  5. 1/2 onion chopped

  6. 2 garlic cloves chopped

  7. 1/4 cup of wine or vinegar

  8. Herbs (Lot, and Lots of finely chopped herbs)

  9. Any other veggies from the garden finely chopped

  10. 2 slice of bacon cubed

Saute your Bacon and onion until soft. Add the garlic and tomato paste and cook for another five minutes. Add your tomatoes,honey vinegar and veggies, and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn the heat off and add herbs.

We are making a Canadian Bacon,(Nueske), Mushroom and Onion Pizza today. Of course I am using the Beehive Oven. It will be served with some tomatoes dressed with Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese, oil and vinegar
