Yum, you make your own puree. How long does it last? Do you freeze it?
We have pizza once a week so that much will probably last us through December. :)

I'll run it through the food mill in a few hours, portion it out, and freeze it.

So what's your passata recipe?

Passata? Think we've got a different definition.

My sauce is pretty simple - tinned tomatoes, basil, onion, garlic, chilli flakes, origanum, sugar and salt. I slowly reduce it, take out the basil stems and onions and run it though a food mill. From there I might reduce it further, depends on the consistency.

The dough is also on the go. :)

That's it!!!!!!!!!!!!! - home made pizza tonight.

Will do the sauce like you do. I remember being told the best tomatoes for cooking are the longish ones, pomodori. Sofia tins are dirt cheap.

It’s worth the effort.

I’ve just run it through the mill and I’ll probably let it simmer for another hour.

Ended up being a bit of a meat-gasm - chorizo, jomon, salchichon, bacon, and some left over shredded beef from last night's tacos. Washed down with a splash of Checkers' finest(ish)

Rocomamas burger and chips. Question: Are their chips portions always that large? It's a bit of a waste. Got a medium chips and the amount of chips covered a large plate!

Yup generally it’s sized to be shared.

Every time I go with someone new to Roco Mamas I tell them to take a small chips and they are like “oh no I’m a big eater”...and every time they never finish the chips or end up handing it out to the table.
