Sauce

I did something today that I've never done before.....I made tomato sauce;  made it with tomatoes that I grew in my own garden.  After I made the tomato sauce, I bottled it (all 3 pints of it, but hey, it's something I did for myself).  It tastes wonderful!  I don't know why garden-grown tomatoes taste so much better than store-bought tomatoes, but they do.  And tomato sauce made from garden-grown tomatoes tastes fantastic!  I just hope the rest of the tomatoes that I have on the vines in my tomato jungle (it really is a jungle....I planted the tomato plants too close) ripen before it frosts.  I want to make more tomato sauce!  The tomato sauce joins the salsa and the spaghetti sauce that I've made from those tomatoes.  So yummy! 

The whole time I was making the sauce, I kept thinking about my grandmother.  She loved tomatoes, and she'd bottle her own sauce.  When we'd come to visit, particularly as she grew older, she'd let us cook.  She'd always send us out to the storehouse to get her tomato sauce if we made spaghetti, or sloppy joes, or anything requiring tomato sauce.  She liked her's better than anything store-bought.  She was right, her's was better.  I guess it's because she raised the tomatoes with love, then cooked and bottled the sauce with more love.  Maybe it's the love that makes homemade sauce taste so good.  Maybe.....
