Nick and Sally love to help in the kitchen.  Sometimes, I have a really hard time figuring out things that they can do.  It’s especially hard to find things that are a real help instead of busy work.

In yesterday’s CSA, we received a couple of packs of slicing tomatoes.  Although they weren’t paste tomatoes, I still wanted to make sauce.  Actually, I want to make ketchup, we it all starts with juice.

I decided to set up the food mill and see what happened.

I sliced the tomatoes, Sally filled the tray and Nick pushed them through.  It worked like a charm.



The kids had a great time and I was glad that this practice session worked.  It’s almost applesauce time and I am hoping that they’ll be able to help.
