Making sauce

Every year the Porinari clan makes a ton of spaghetti sauce with the buckets and buckets of tomatoes they have. It's quite a production. There were stations for dicing, pre-cooking, pulverizing, final cooking with the spices and veggies, and the final canning stage. This year we got in on the action too. We had a blast dicing tomatoes for about an hour. (I think that everyone else clocked about eight hours on the project.) They'll have sauce for the next 10 years! A small portion of the tomatoe vines. (Franco and Elaria)
Here are the dicing and pre-cooking stages.
