Default Making fresh tomato sauce with a cheese grater

Really cool method for removing the skin.

It might be interesting to compare this method to blanching.

Personally, I think it must be awfully sloppy.

I can see myself cutting my hand open. I can hardly be trusted to open a box or grate ginger.

That would be different. I wish they had shown a picture of the cheese grater. We've been using our two "ALL in ONE PAT. PEND." cheese graters for 31 years now, and they were used when we got them.

I tried it and it worked.

I didn't slice my hand.

It was a regular box grater, and it wasn't sloppy. It all went in the bowl, and then was poured on my pasta.

You mean you grated fresh toms and poured on your pasta without cooking? Okay.

Yes, it was a little different, but it tasted good.

Hmmpf. Worth a try I guess. Thanks for the suggestion.

Now I just need some tomatoes.

Did you heat the sauce? If so, how long?

Looks pretty cool and effective to me. I bet after adding garlic, onions, mushrooms, basil, S&P and some Italian seasoning and simmering it for an hour to reduce the water it would be really good. I am definately going to try this when I get tomatoes.
