La salsa – Homemade tomato sauce for winter

I'm tired. But I continue to look at the moon. Enchanted. Maybe I should not  do it, it's not my role, it is no more my role. But this day, dedicated to the preparation of  "SALSA”, the classic “tomato passata” , was unforgettable. Nowadays  this Puglia tradition has become lost, because also here in every supermarket you can find  platforms of “tomato passata” offered for cheap price. Anyone is invited to cast away this authentic tradition and “home made salsa” is going to be thrown into oblivion. But not me.
