    here is something i thought i'd try while watering the garden today and it turned out good and spicy.....

    gotta love romas in feb........



    some mixed chili plants........


    sliced the romas and chilis, separated a 1/2 onion, 4-5 cloves of garlic, and one small can of whole tomatoes with the juice...smoked for 2hrs


    put everything in the blender with 1/2 cup of water, S&P and simmered for 30 min.......


    this came out really nice, smokey, tomato sweet, and spicy! now i need to freeze in icecube trays for future use.

    Rob -- great looking/sounding sauce! I'm going to make some here...when the weather changes drastically and we can grow our tomatos! I am jealous about being able to grow those and peppers in Feb! My wife and I have been talking about retiring to somewhere warmer....this makes me want to do it now! Especially with another 5 inches of snow in the last 24 hours....

    Great job as always Rob.

    Gardening in the middle of winter...
    My first little seedlings just came up today for this years garden...Winter Rye is covered with snow with another 8-12 inches on the way today.
    I'm shaking my fist with envy right now, but at least gardening season will be here soon and many tasty veggies will follow.
    Were not called the Garden State for our toxic waste! Actually that is up North near N.Y.C and such.

    Closest we get to "Fresh Produce" this time of year, is the gassed crap that comes from Mexico and South America!

    I freeze spaghetti sauce and it works out great. Never thought about smoking tomatoes, making sauce and freezing it in ice cube trays.

    How long do you smoke the tomatoes?

    Thanks for the idea Rob!
