It's tomato season! These 50+ pounds I cooked down for just a simple sauce. I'll use that sauce later this winter for my once-a-month meals and for canning homemade pork and beans.
Of course, no food preparation is done independently of small children.
Kiddo3 ran the crank for a while and then just watched the juice run out in complete fascination.
(Kinda like her mom the first time I used a Victorio Food Mill!)
