Whilst Monday was a public holiday in Victoria, some of my family got together to make the sugo for this coming winter. Whilst peel tomatoes (especially San Marzano) are fantastic, nothing beats your own sugo and this year we made it over two weekends.
The tomatoes this week was a massive improvement on those from a couple of weeks ago. These contained less liquid and more concentration: key ingredients to a good sugo.
These bottles will keep for at least a couple of years an if you know any Italian friends, see if you can beg, borrow or steal a few bottles from them and try the real deal…..
