Salsa time...

My all-time favourite scent of autumn is that of simmering salsa or spaghetti sauce, and this year is no exception.  It was made especially colourful this year using John's heritage tomatoes.


Starting with fresh garden onions, garlic and peppers, the first layer of tomatoes begins to fill the pan.


The second layer gets mixed in,


the spices get added,


 the pan gets larger, more tomatoes are added (ranging from yellow to zebra green and black to orange and a few red),

and the cooking begins.  This year I added hree cans of tomato paste to get that luscious red colour that one expects of salsa.


The results are more delicious than ever with these richly flavoured tomatoes.  I know both the colour and taste will go down exceptionally well in February!

Are you wondering why this blog is featuring garden colour right now?  It's because the studio is still in a shambles as the bathroom is being renovated.  More about that later, but it's the garden and kitchen that provides my daily colour fix these days!

By the way, if you're looking for art classes this fall and winter, check out the listings on the right hand side of the page - between Creston, Wynndel, Cranbrook, Kimberley and Claresholm, there should be a place for you!
