Yellow Tomato Sauce

The number of tomato varieties are HUGE and comes in several different colors and shapes. My (Ann) parents has been growing tomatoes as long as I can remember and my dad always wants to try new varieties. This year he decided to to the yellow pear tomato and he sowed several seeds hoping to get a plant or two – but unexpectedly they all grew and he ended up with 7 or 8 plant of this specific sort (and then came the 3 others sorts he sowed the year).

Some of the pants were given to family and friend (we got a plant to – the picture below) and then he kept the 3 plants himself. Having kept three plant himself means that one needs to be creative when cooking, if not having tomato salad every day šŸ™‚

Last week there were an over float of tomatoes and my parents agreed that we should make try and make some yellow tomato sauce. Normally when we make tomato sauceĀ we add red wine, but this would ruin both the taste and color of this sauce, so we decided to use chicken stock instead, which turned out to be the perfect match šŸ™‚
