I'm grateful for...

 I'm grateful for the last of my tomato harvest and the inspiration of warm sunshine to have a crack at Jamie Oliver's homemade tomato ketchup recipe.

Right, so you get a bunch of tomatoes yeah, and then you skin and dice em up.
Smell those ingredients yeah. I've got mustard seeds, basil, onion, parsley, celery, chili, coriander, fennel, ginger, cloves - so many I have no idea which ingredient is the "hero"of the dish! It's all pucka tucka really!

Hard work channelling Jamie whilst cooking. I bet he doesn't finish them off by placing them in girly jars like mine. These ones are off to good homes.

For more gratefulness, there's bucket loads here.

Jools'd put them in those girly jars.

I did laugh, yeah, at your Jamie take-off.

Tasty sauce? Looks tasty!

S'gorgeous innit? Smell those tomatoes! Nuffing like growing your own.

Good old Jamie. He's hard at work trying to create a 'dream school' at the moment, he can't have time to cook much any more.

Your result looks lovely - tell me you didn't crochet those jar covers and upcycled some doilies or you are clearly wonderwoman!

I am jealous of your tomato harvest.

I discovered that recipe a few years ago when our vegie garden was being way more productive. Everyone got some for christmas. This year I had to buy tomatoes, in fact I best buy more as I know we have only half a jar left of that ketchup and I love it!

Love the jars:)

I love the feeling of being able to pick your own produce and then making something yummy with it. Your jars are very pretty too!!!

Great job and they look so pretty!! I'd love to make my own relishy goodness one day. That's definitely not something I've found time for to date! x

Allana said...

YAY for tomato plants that are still pumping with juice little sweetie bite yummies!

Next weekend we'll be pulling ours out, the plants are dying but the tomatoes keep growing?!
