100 pounds of tomatoes looks like 28 of these quarts.
Yesterday, I headed out to a pick-your-own farm and picked tomatoes. Once I got home, I had a long day and night of canning! Canning is time consuming, but the taste of these tomatoes does not even compare to the cans you buy at the store. We use these jars all winter long in chili, soups, and sauces.
I didn't can all of the tomatoes. I used some to make fresh salsa. This is so good on chips or over grilled fish. I got all of the ingredients at the farm. To make this, mix together chopped tomatoes, white onion, a jalapeno, cilantro, garlic and fresh lime juice. YUM!
Guess what's for dinner tonight? Yep, more tomatoes. This time in a caprese salad: fresh mozzarella, basil that I got at the farm, tomatoes, and a drizzle of balsamic and olive oil.
