Sauce Futures

Some people invest in pork or corn futures. Others in Bordeaux futures. I, on the other hand, invest in sauce futures. Friday night is pizza and movie night in these parts and the pizza needs to have “Dadda sauce” on them. This is the name my daughter gave the tomato sauce I make. This means I need to make at least 200+ pizzas worth of sauce which doesn’t even include various other tomato sauce needs. Last year was the first year I made the entire batch from tomatoes we grew, somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 pounds worth. This translated into about 48 jars of tomato sauce. And, of course, the tomatoes are starting to come in and I still have a case of  jars. Oh well, better safe than sorry.

Here is the first label my daughter did for the sauce…

  1. Sauce Futures- love it! It is always so satisfying using something home grown. You could always market your “Dadda Sauce”.

  2. I love this. Hopefully all of the rain we are getting is not affecting your investment.

  3. No, if anything the garden seems to be appreciating the strange weather.

  4. I am impressed with your stash of sauce! Wish I lived next door so I could come over and get a jar.

    • That is only part of the “stash.” Each year I say I will cook with more tomato sauce but each year I seem to still have a lot left over. Better than the alternative I suppose.

  6. Just discovered your blog via Rufus´Food and Spirits Guide. I do the exact same thing with my tomatoes! Didn´t make quite as much as you last year (which I regret) as we are now on our last jar. Only a few weeks more until this years´will be ready ready to start picking, eating (and bottling)!
