I got 41 pounds of tomatoes today! (This recycled produce box came in very handy.)
I did one batch of sauce this evening, using 20 pounds.
Perhaps it wasn't the best idea to start this process at 7 pm on a Sunday night, but I was so excited about the piles of tomatoes.
By the time this batch was cooked to soften the tomatoes, put through the food mill, cooked down more to get the right consistency, and canned, it was late. I just finished, and it's 1:00 in the morning.
But I now have another eight pints of delicious thick spaghetti sauce safely preserved to add to my stash in the basement.
