tomato frito

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Thanks I'll try this. Do you need 2 jars as per recipe or will 1 be enough?

Home Made Tomato Frito

I found this on another website, but the author has made it clear that this recipe can be used by all.

""&"187; Posted by Eliza on May 18th, 2007


In many of my recipes you will often hear me mention using a tomato frito, which we often buy ready made here in Spain. However, in case you do not have this option and would like to try how much richer it makes a dish, please feel free to use the following recipe.

Ingredients
1 kg very ripe tomatoes [or equivalent tinned tomatoes]
3 tbs of olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 medium onion
Salt
Basil
1 clove garlic (optional)

Method
1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and gently fry off the chopped onion and garlic for three to four minutes.

2. Peel and chop the tomatoes [try dropping the tomatoes in boiling water for around a minute to make them easier to peel] and then add them to the frying pan [you can use tinned tomatoes in place of fresh ones if you wish].

2. Mash tomatoes, onions and garlic as they cook to help release the flavours. Cook for around 15 mins on a medium heat.

3. Once cooked, take off the heat and liquidise. Season with the salt and sugar.

This sauce is perfect for serving with meatballs, over pasta or even cold with tortilla espanola! ""

As you can see the "Frito"
has other ingredients in it, so to use just Passata may make the dish a little bland.

Frito

Yummy, that's correct, but I tend to go for the passata in Sainsburys that has herbs, etc in and sort of season with whatever I think the dish needs, but I should have mentioned that!

Sorry Nor, just got back in to find your message, yes that is it in total, I thought it best to show the full original quote from Eliza's recipe. Has it been fixed now ?

Yummy

Not yet, but I will let you know. Thanks very much

Tomato frito

I know this advice is not much good now in November, but next year I recommend you try growing your own tomatoes (beefsteak are easy to grow even outdoors) you will get so many fruits that you will be able to make enough frito to last the year (freeze after cooking).

Tomato frito

I don't think you will have any trouble growing tomatoes in France, but just in case, do as the French do. Plant French Marigolds with the tomato plants and they will deter most tomato pests. Plum tomatoes are most wonderful when grown at home, especially in salads. But don't have any hangups about what varieties go with what. Home grown are so different. As for *using up* as you say plum tomatoes, haven't you ever seen truck loads of field tomatoes driving along the roads in Italy? wonderful sight but keep well back from them as they fall off the top and make the road very slippery!

Meant to also say on the Heinz Frito

If you look at News&Features/Cheat's Products and where to find them. Frito stockists are listed there - well sort of....!
