Making tomato sauce at harvest time is another European family tradition that has been brought to Australia and handed down from generation to generation.
The best tomatoes to use for sauce making have been sun-ripened, and have soft skins which travel easily through the sauce machine and give up their juice readily. Store bought tomatoes have generally been picked green, then chemically ripened. These are fine to use, but as their skins tend to be much tougher, best results are obtained by pre-blanching them prior to processing.
