Busy with my tomatoes..

Friday, September 27, 2013

I had an excellent tomato crop this year. I canned 50 quarts of tomatoes.

I made spaghetti sauce and salsa. I canned 12 pints of each. I've made 5 batches of Pica de Gallo and a double batch of chili.

I also gave away tomatoes to family, friends, neighbors and coworkers. I still have more tomatoes left. Nothing is as tasty as a fresh tomato on my salad.

    Oh, my goodness, what I wouldn't give to have a fresh, sun ripened tomato. My father used to grow some but I haven't tried growing them myself as our climate isn't the best for them.

    Gorgeous tomatoes!!!!! And you'll enjoy them all year long!

    Have you tried dehydrating any? Just curious, because I love sun dried tomatoes!

    Ooooh yummy. My tomatoes have only gone in, so it will be a while before I get to reap and eat.
