This is NOT a sponsored post, product review or paid post. This purely my opinion.
I had a Vitamix. I tried to like it. Everyone else said it was amazing. I found it to be an over priced kitchen gadget that didn't live up to the hype. Fortunately Costco has and AMAZING return policy which allowed me to return it for the massive price we paid ( $400+ for a blender) It just doesn't do enough to justify the price. In fact a Kitchen Aid Mixer is a MUCH better deal. It can do a lot more with the variety of attachments.
A few days ago I went to Buppert's Farm to pick up product. They had tomatoes for canning for $10.00 for what I think was a bushel as you can see $10 worth was A LOT of tomatoes.
- Remove the skin with hot water and ice.
|Fill one bowl with ice and cold water|
Boil water and drop the tomatoes in it!
After they are in boiling water for a minute use a spoon and drop the hot tomatoes into the ice water.
This makes the tomatoes very easy to peel!
I didn't have a bowl big enough for all the peeled tomatoes!
|Set up the kitchaid and attachments! This works so much better than the Vitmix because it also removes the seeds!|
Look how nice! The good stuff goes in one container and the seeds into another.
|Look how nice!|
|It made so much I had to also fill my Ninja Crock Pot|
The "recipe" is so simple
After putting the tomatoes through my Kitchen Aide Vegetable and Fruit Strainer. I added the following.
1. 1 container of Trader Joe's Beef Broth in EACH the stock pot and Ninja 3 in 1.
2. 1 Cup fresh basil in EACH stock pot and Ninja 3 in 1
3. 1 or 2 heads garlic in EACH stockpot
4. Teaspoon in each of Artisanal Salts Hand Rakes Celtic Gray Sea Salt ( Better quality spices make the difference)
5. Teaspoon or more taste of Artisanal & Organic Mediterranean Oregano
6. Then just let both simmer on law for a few hours!
This is so easy! If I used a Vitamix it would have taken FOREVER to get all the tomatoes into soup form! This is why I returned it and prefer my Kitchen Aid Mixer and attachments!
