Jody..first thing..wear some plastic gloves, wash your peppers,take off the stem, cut them to take out the seeds etc, peel your garlic. use equal amount of garlic to peppers grind finely in food processor , use a little olive oil until it's like a paste.. you then will only need about 1/4 tsp for 1-2 quart dishes.. using it will determine how much you will need. It gets stronger with age :o)
Rabe. We still have the Side garden and the P's garden...and soon the Eggplant will have to be taken up..Now I'm afraid to let that still grow..least something take it.. I'm still canning tomato sauce or soups ...I've added my spices to the tomatoes and cooked them to a point where I can use the sieve to take out the skins, seeds and pieces of spices now I can use the tomatoes any way I like. (After I cook it down a bit ) Then If I add some cream, it will be a delicious soup. Or I can add it to some Italian Sausages with onions and peppers on a hero :o) Or chill it and use it as a Tomato juice breakfast with toast. So many ways to use tomatoes. :o) I still have too many in the freezer..little by little I'll get it done..
