Question of the Day

What is your favorite kitchen utensil or gadget?
All Clad Food Mill

My favorite kitchen gadget is a food mill. When I peeled and seeded the tomatoes for canning, I reserved the liquid, skin, cores, and various other bits of tomato in a bowl. I popped all that "refuse" into a stock pot and cooked for 30 minutes. Then, I ran the cooked bits and pieces through the food mill. Voila! I had a wonderful tomato sauce that will be used to make a big batch of marinara. I must say that the strained juice/sauce makes a lovely addition to vodka with a hefty dose of Tabasco. HA!

From the tomatoes I canned this year, just the "refuse" yielded seven quarts of sauce. YAY!
