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.
