Unfortunately, a food mill will set you back anywhere from $35 to $80 when you buy them new, so I recommend you keep an eye out at garage sales, flea markets and the Goodwill store. I've gotten all of mine (I own four of different sizes) for less than $10 each. Look for a mill that isn't too rusty or dented. The center shaft should turn smoothly without being wobbly, and the interior blade should press firmly against the screen. Get the largest you can find and afford, and pretty soon you'll be making homemade applesauce without having to peel all those apples!
This afternoon I'll add some wine and garlic to the tomato puree, reduce it to the correct thickiness and add fresh minced basil, oregano and rosemary, salt and pepper. Then we'll crank up the biggest steam kettle to can about 20 quarts of pizza sauce tonight. Is my life great or what?
UPDATE AT 10:30 p.m.
The pizza sauce turned out to be very flavorful indeed (plenty of herbs, practicially a whole bulb of garlic in 16 quarts) but far sweeter than usual, although I didn't add any sugar. So I suspect that's due to the type of tomatoes Br. Luke grew this year, which I have found to be deliciously sweet in a salad or on a smoked turkey sandwich, but I'm not sure how it will play out on a pizza.
Secondly, I tried a recipe off the Internet for red velvet cake donuts, and it did not turn out at all. I won't reveal what company website I found it on, but let me say that Queen Guenivere should be looking for a new baker. The cream cheese frosting rocked, so if we can find a red velvet recipe to match, we'll be in business. I may try baking the donuts instead of frying, since I have the special pans needed for that. Somewhere . . .
