Recipe from Laura

Pomarola (fresh tomato sauce)

Jacopo and Mary have been hosting Live Sipping Sessions on Facebook for a few weeks now and Laura joined them the other week to share her recipe for a Pomarola (fresh tomato sauce). We can guarantee this will become a go-to in your cooking repertoire.
 
It is a simple recipe with few ingredients and the quality of the tomatoes being key. Laura does recommend Roma or San Marzano tomatoes. This is an incredibly versatile recipe that will pair to perfection with a more medium-bodied Chianti Classico like our L’aura.

INGREDIENTS
1 kg tomatoes (Roma or San Marzano)
1 celery rib
1 carrot
1 onion
Fresh basil leaves
Dried oregano
White sugar (if the sauce seems too acidic)
1 garlic clove (crushed)
Salt & pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil

  1. Wash all of the vegetables and dice up the onion, carrot and celery. Quarter the tomatoes (skins on).
  2. Put the vegetables in a pan along with the crushed garlic clove (skin removed) and cook on a high heat.
  3. If the vegetables do not release any water, stir until soft and cooked all the way through. If the vegetables begin to release water, stir until the water evaporates and then cook up appropriately.
  4. Once the vegetables are cooked through, remove from the heat and let sit for approximately 30 minutes.
  5. Take a hand-crank food mill and pass the vegetable mixture through 1 tablespoon at a time. This will form the base for the tomato sauce.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar per kg of tomatoes if the sauce is too acidic.
  7. Heat the tomato sauce in a large pan and add salt, dried oregano and pepper to taste, along with 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil. You can add pepperoncino to spice things up if you desire.
  8. Cut up and add the fresh basil to finish off the sauce. 

Note: If you do not have a food mill, you can use a food processor/blender + metal sieve combo but Laura does highly recommend adding this to your kitchen tools as it is fantastic for preparing purees, sauces and soups.
