Saving Summer

Remember when I was going on about preserving summer in a jar? Well I've done some work on that. Last week I made some jam. Here it is, bubbling away.

Caramel Peach Jam with Anise and Vanilla

This week I made some tomato sauce. I used two Marcella Hazan recipes. One is just tomatoes simmered with a halved onion and butter. The second has:

Purple carrots! But they're not purple all the way through.

Can you smell it? Breathe deep.

The jar on the left has the simple tomato sauce (good for gnocchi) and the one on the right has the more complicated version. I added some basil too. They are about to go into a hot water bath to seal them up until some really nasty gray day in January when a bit of sun will be very welcome.
