    At the end of every growing season we always end up with a load of tomatoes. We mostly roast them and vac pac to use throughout the year.

    Here's our newest favorite thing to do with tomaters.

    This can be totally no cook if you want. I don't like raw onion or garlic much so I sauté them in a bit of butter or olive oil.

    While that's happening I or my Sous chef will grate the veggies for the sauce. That's right grate!

    Cut your tomatoes in half, remove seeds, trim ends off of zucchini. I typically use 4 large tomatoes, and two small zucchini.

    Using the smallest grater option on the grater box start grating the tomatoes. At first it will look like not much but after you get going it will start to pile up. When your done you'll just have the skin left.

    Using the next size up on the box grate the zucchini.

    To this mixture add whatever seasonings you want. I added fresh chopped basil, salt and pepper, and the cooled sautéed onion garlic mixture.

    This can be served cold or hot. You could smoke any or all of the ingredients if you wanted too. Smoked roasted garlic is good as is smoker roasted onion.

    Tonight we will add prawns and shrimp. More of that in the fish and seafood forum!
