    Did you do the tomatoes? That looks wonderful !! Won’t fresh tomatoes in the winter be wonderful! I am so glad you showed us each step. I doubt many people know how to “can” anymore. I have heard of homemade salsa. if you like that kind of thing, it is supposed to be delicious!

      We grew the tomatoes, but we can’t eat them all. There’s too many. One of the cans we made up with jalapeno, for chilli. No reason you couldn’t do salsa the same way. Tomatoes don’t spoil easily, because they are so acidic, so they are great for home canning.

    Are they stewed tomatoes now?? Do you use them to make tomato sauce.

    Ha….you can tell I’ve never canned tomatoes.

    • Doug says:

      Each jar is roughly two large tomatoes, crushed up. What you do with them after that is entirely up to the chef! If I had to call them something, stewed would be about right.

    Wow. You’re going to have to teach me how to do that.

    Very, very cool. Don’t think I’ve been privy to this for years– as in, it’s been years since my mother ever did something like this.

    I will… sometime. All I’ve done is grape juice, mostly. I’ll have to figure a way to do it here in Apartment Land.

    By the way– don’t be a stranger! I’m still trying to figure out how to add you to Privacy, but the Journal Jar group made it: VOX Journal Jar In Exile and I’d like to add you and have you retake ownership of your posts. Also, been promoting TechsWrite: The Helpful Techie

      Actually our first time canning anything. It was fun, but I think we should have removed sees/pulp first. Can’t wait to eat them in a recipe!
