I had excess tomatoes left over from last weeks trip to the farm shop, so I thought i’d make a nice spot of tomato soup.
6 Large Vine Tomatoes
6 Cloves of Garlic
A good glug of extra virgin Olive Oil.
A handful of shredded fresh basil leaves.
Some herbamare Salt and crushed black pepper to season.
- Take an oven proof dish and place the tomatoes into it.
- Scatter 6 cloves of garlic in amongst the tomatoes (leave the papery skins on)
- cover with a generous amount of olive oil
- slow bake in a medium oven for a couple of hours until the tomatoes are soft and the garlic is squidgey.
- Carefully take the skins off the tomato and garlic and put into a saucepan.
- Add enough water to cover and simmer
- Either add a vegetable stock cube / powder and seasonings & shredded basil, allow to cook through for 5 mins.
- Blitz to liquidise, pass through a sieve to remove seeds then return to the pan and add some double cream, heat through and stir it thoroughly,
- to serve you can add a switl of cream and some finely chopped basil leaves.
Serve immediately… serves 2 (big bowls) or 4 (Small bowls)
I made butter this afternoon and I cant believe how easy it is to do!
All you need is one 600ml carton of double cream.. pour the cream into a food mixer with a whisk attachment…. turn on to med-high for around ten mins…
1. First it turns to thick cream
2. Then it goes like scrambled egg
3. Then all of a sudden it comes together inside the ball whisk and seperates from the liquid, giving you butter and butter milk!
4. I seperated the buttermilk into a small jug
5. I turned out the butter onto a clean square of muslin and gave it a good squeeze, to remve the last of the buttermilk..
6. Turned it out onto a wooden chopping board and took 2 large wooden spoons to pat it into shape.
I will be using the buttermilk to make scones or muffins with later on today..
