Last summer's harvest

I know this doesn't look really exciting but I'm exceptionally pleased to have, at last, managed to make passata that has kept for a year. All previous attempts have ended after a few months with layers of mould on top. I'm hoping that I can repeat this success this year - though first the tomato plants need some sunshine.

    1. The making isn't hard - apart from sieving to remove skin and seeds - but I don't really know what I did differently last year. Maybe I just got a better 'seal' on the bottles.
