With all the tomatoes in the garden, I’ve been super busy. I love being busy, dont’ get me wrong but not this kind of busy. Picked out a Kitchen Mill, or a Food strainer to help me out in straining all the tomatoes for sauce this past week. Well turns out my own method was a better idea. It was just brutal work. Just picture a large colander, I’ll pour the cooked sauce into it, and take the a glass jar and start pressing at the sauce going in circles to get the sauce through and “theoretically” keeping the skin within the colander. It nearly worked out, only the garlic,onions, and even seasoning that was supposed to stay in the sauce got stuck as well with the skins. I ended up hand picking gunk that was needed for the sauce, back out . It’s just a lot more work, and very messy. This is why I picked a food strainer/mill, Instead of me pressing, and shoving the sauce through, I’d just be turning a handle to crank. Or so I thought.
The Food Strainer/Mill was supposed to separate the skins mostly, I don’t really mind seeds. It took about forty minutes to get the thing together, because I couldn’t connect the strainer to the body.
