Recipe Groupe selection 9/17/11. Being basically lazy, I just rough cut my tomatoes peels and all and added them to the pot with the onion and carrots, which I had grated in the food processor. I omitted the sugar because I felt the carrots would add the needed sweetness and added celery seed instead of celery salt. When this mixture had cooked down I put it back in the food processor until it was almost pureed. I didn't strain it at all because it was too thick. I didn't think it needed any salt but I added a healthy amount of fresh ground pepper and fresh basil and just a pinch of dry thyme and the garlic powder. It turned out so rich and satisfying we thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be hitting the farmers market again this week and if I can score another batch of ripe tomatoes, I'll make the base and freeze it for use on a cold winter night. Thanks, Shorecook, this is another simple but yummy classic.
