We did it! The kids and I successfully canned tomatoes. It was actually pretty easy, but it took all day due to letting the tomatoes cook down quite a bit. We did two batches...diced, then pureed for spaghetti sauce.
As I implied the other day, I don't even like tomatoes. Actually, that's not quite accurate. I loathe raw tomatoes. They are from the devil. Brian feels pretty much the same way.
However, many things that I cook and love have tomatoes in them. So I go through canned tomatoes pretty quickly.
Whose child is she?
The funny thing is, I was planning on going to thrift stores in the morning to find canning jars / supplies. Then on a whim I looked in my garage and discovered I had everything - giant pot, jars, lids, rings...I was set!
