Julie and two of her boys came over on Saturday to make Salsa since everyone has had a bumper crop of tomatoes this year. But first we had to make brownies to sustain us through all the hard work ahead of us.
A face that only a grandma could love :)
We use a Sauce Master Food Strainer with a salsa screen on it. The good stuff slides down the little shoot on the side and the peelings pop out the front. It is pretty ingenious and works great. My job was to quarter the tomatoes, Austin had the messy job of putting them into the white funnel. Julie proved herself quite capable of pushing the tomatoes into the grinder. Dakota was the muscles of the operation. He had to turn the crank.
Who could have known making salsa took such concentration?
To top the day off, Austin serenaded us. The accordion he is playing was one I had when I was a child in the 50’s. Cool, huh.
