|29 lbs of organic heirloom tomato's|
For my recipe today I was very cautious about only using garlic, onion and basil, and about adding the lemon juice to each jar before filling. I followed Ball Blue Books recipe and also a recipe I found at http://locallemons.com/local_lemons/2009/09/canning-tomato-sauce.html I sort of followed hers to start and then finished with ball blue book for safety guidelines, times etc.
|First I roasted them with olive oil, garlic and onions.|
|I then sauteed the onions and garlic in the same pan I roasted them in.|
Until they were all gone, I now know that next year I will be buying at least 70 lbs of tomato's because even though this one pot took me almost a half day, I know deep down that regular old tomato sauce from the store just won't do. Not anymore, how could it? Not after tasting and smelling this.
|Aren't these jars cute? I found them at Walmart. There Better Homes and Gardens.|
|4 quarts and 3 pints..yep that's it.|
|All I want to do now is make pasta..|
|Love love love this!!|
|This is all with in 4 months:) and I didn't take pictures of the other shelfs..|
