  1. I work in a greenhouse in the spring season and am always tempted beyond what I can bear! This year several varieties of tomatoes came home with me. I have been blessed with a bountiful harvest! What to do with Cherry Tomatoes coming in by the basketful... I found this recipe on the WWW and thought someone out there with my problem/blessing might enjoy this small but yummy solution.

    Curried Ketchup:
    1 pint cherry tomatoes
    1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons curry powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Pinch ground cloves
    Put the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, curry powder, salt, pepper and cloves into a saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve the sugar and cook until the tomatoes have broken down and the mixture is slightly thick, about 10 minutes. Pour the mix into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating. Place in a decorative bowl to serve.
    Yield: 1 cup

    This turned out to be a very sweet and sour sauce that didn't resemble Ketchup in any way but texture. I used 5 pints of cherry tomatoes, 4 teaspoons of curry (if you love curry like I do you could add even more) 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. I also added 6 cloves of garlic. Then I simmered it until it was about the texture of ketchup. I think this will make a great sauce over steamed veges and rice!

  2. Hey! I LOVE this! Will be checking it often!!! Keep the pictures coming!! I want to see your house....

  3. yum, Esther! This sounds awesome....and we've got plenty of tomatoes left from our garden to do it! Thanks!

  4. This sounds wonderful. I had a load of little yellow tomatoes, they were so tasty. But I kind of neglected my poor little garden this year. I always begin with great zeal and as the heat increases I fizzle out! I think I must be a cool weather gardener! :)
