{Recipe} Tomato Gravy

If you grow your own garden, you, most likely, have tomatoes, and plenty of them.  The only tomatoes I grow are cherry tomatoes.  I have learned these are the best to grow in our area (thanks to the nibbling chipmunks), and they are perfect for my little one to pick and pop in her mouth!  But, thanks to my amazing growing skills (heh heh heh), we always seem to have an overabundance for cherry tomatoes.

Bring on this recipe.

It’s a great way to use up a daily amount of red cherry tomatoes and make an amazing Sunday breakfast!  I even made a big bunch of these (I made up 16 cups of this) last summer and froze it in sandwich bags.  It was so great to have a little taste of the summer in the dead of winter!  I just heated it in a pan to make it warm and smooth.

To make the fresh tomato puree, put about a quart of cherry tomatoes in your blender and blend it well.  When it’s done liquefying, it will have reduced to half the around you originally had in here.  Using fresh, garden tomatoes is the best way, and the tastiest way, to make this!  Canned puree doesn’t match this, and even store-bought cherry tomatoes do not hold the flavor as the ones in your garden do.  Trust me, it will taste enormously superior.  Promise.
