We've been canning tomatoes! 100 lbs of tomatoes yields 63 quarts. It took the four of us about 8 hours over two days to get them all done.
Cost: $48 for 100 lbs of tomatoes. Plus lids, rings and jars.
And in the nick of time, too. We're down to a single jar of last year's tomatoes left.
We'll use them to make sauces, tomato soup with lots of basil and thyme, minestrone with beans, squash and a bit of oregano. Best winter food ever.
