Cooking Up a Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce Storm

image

I have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen – making my roasted tomato, pasta sauce in bulk.

This pasta sauce fed my family last night.  It will also feed the Ladies at the Picton CWA branch today and the Seed Savers group on Saturday.

All ingredients in my sauce were sourced within a 30 kilometer radius from my home (except the pine nuts):

* Tomatoes and carrots from a local farmer
* Garlic from Little Field Mice Farm
* Basil and oregano from my garden

Do you rely 100% on supermarkets for your food?

Or are you one of the increasing numbers of people taking control of their own food sourcing, growing and producing – their food security?

If you have never grown your own food, it is never too late to join the millions of home growers.  My advice is to start with herbs or rockett lettuce (both will be kind to the beginner).

Data suggest that more than half (52 per cent) of all Australian households are growing some of their own food and a further 13 per cent report they intend to start.

What will you start growing today or what was the very first edible plant you grew?
