When life gives you tomatoes ... make spaghetti sauce

My mum used to make this when we had lots of home grown tomatoes. She would actually put it into preserving jars, but I find freezing batches in meal-sized containers works just as well.

5.5 kg fresh tomatoes
0.5 kg onions
salt and pepper (to taste)
100 g butter
50 g flour

Cut up tomatoes and onions, season with pepper and salt and cook (no water required) until pulpy. Melt butter, add flour, cook until frothy and add the butter mixture to the tomato mixture, stirring all the time. Simmer gently until thickened. Adjust seasoning to taste. Enjoy!

This year's tomato crop is coming to an end. At least this
way we'll get to keep eating them as the weather cools
