WHAT ABOUT THE END-OF-THE-SEASON ABUNDANCE OF NOT-QUITE-RIPE TOMATOES?
Make a multi-use spicy sauce base. Use the same proportions of dried to fresh tomatoes as described in the previous post, but assuming all or most of the fresh ones never ripened on the vine, for every quart, add:
1 tsp. salt
1 T. sugar
1 T ground cumin
optional: chiles and dried powdered kelp, for flavour and nutrition
This base can be easily transformed into so many different cuisines’ sauce as needed — even a BBQ sauce — with the further addition of appropriate seasonings.
