I rode my bike up to Doc Davies farm stand in Congers today for a few ears of corn and some apples. But I had to call my husband to come with the car to take home the best find: 25 pounds of “utility” tomatoes for just $18.
They say there are only two or three days left for tomatoes over at Davies, so they’re selling them before they turn. (That’s why I’m blogging on a Saturday night… I wanted you all to know before they’re gone!)
This is my biggest stockpot — 16 quarts, I think — and they just barely fit inside.
I’m not planning on skinning or seeding them — I’ll just let them cook down, maybe overnight, but at least til bedtime. Then tomorrow I’ll run them through the food mill, put them in quart bags and freeze them. Voila — tomato sauce for winter!
Dr. Davies Farm Stand is on Route 9W in Congers, just north of the northernmost entrance to Rockland Lake at Lake Road. Here’s the Web site: drdaviesfarm.com
