I canned some tomatoes today, 13 pints Tomorrow it will be Salsa
that is a beautiful sight! i love it when the pantry is full of those lil' jars of yumminess.
we have this contraption that squishes the pulp and juice out of the tomatoes (minus skin and seeds) so we have been freezing them. so far so good - if we have a power outage, we are having marinara for dinner for a month lolz i have cooked some of the tomatoes down into pizza sauce, then put them through the contraption and freeze them in dixie cups (each enough sauce to make one pizza) i wish i grew more basil because i am almost out of the pesto i put up last year - it's so pretty and green - much better than you could ever buy........ anyways, i froze the pesto in dixie cups and they are about 2 TB each so if i need some, viola! i got just enough
