Peeling and Seeding Tomatoes

We have such an abundance of tomatoes this season!

This week, I decided it was time to start preparing some of the tomatoes for homemade sauces. I love making lots of tomato sauce. Not only is it delicious and nutritious, but it can be stored in containers in the freezer for any time the craving hits - it's another great way to preserve the summer's bounty.

My housekeeper, Enma, and I, gathered all the newly-picked tomatoes, removed the skins, and separated the flesh and seeds. It was a multi-step process, but well-worth the effort for all the wonderful sauces I will enjoy the rest of the year. Here are some photos.
