August And Everything Tomato, part 4

~ Hand-colored block print, “Red” from the series for the book, Sustenance For A Wild Woman.  Limited edition, $65  ~


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.

I endeavour to live well on a small and sporadic income and to continue to devote my time and energy to authentic, nourishing art and food work. Tips are an important source of income. If it’s something you’re able and inspired to do, be assured that even a tiny amount a month helps cover the basics and is much appreciated.

Or, buy paintings and other art on good old-fashioned layaway!
