Tomato Skins in Tomato Sauce 

Also dare I say it? When I find loads of cherry tomatoes in the fridge and they are on their way out I make this sauce and freeze it.

Also many people have asked about the skins?

Well because you are using cherry tomatoes they are so soft, no need at all to remove them.

Also this is great as they are packed with flavour and also extra fibre (winner winner)

You can of course make it with normal sized tomatoes, I just find it’s not quite as sweet!

And you may then have to remove the skins?

  1. A trip to M and S for chicken breasts and luckily by chance stumbled on their reduction time 20p for their gorgeous cherry toms, bought two bags – got home and thought mmm what am I going to do with these – as their sell by date was that day. Remembered seeing your Tom sauce recipe – gave it a go – just delicious- so simple, so healthy
