nope, us old buzzards are supposed to do more fiber . . . (g)

no peel, no seeding . . . cooked down in the pot.
now,,, depending on what eventually becomes of them, other things can happen.
for pizza I hit 'em with the stick blender, then into a strainer to de-water, then heat up for pizza sauce, adding back liquid for the desired consistency. but we like chunky tomato sauce so no food mill kind of stuff.

stewed tomatoes will get cleaned up a bit, seasoned, add gr pepper/onion/etc . . .

I peel.

When doing juice I don't peel and run everything through a Foley Food Mill by hand. I'll make juice tomorrow.

Today I'll make 7 more quarts and may call it a year. I need to think about getting ready for vacation.

Default Re: Canning Tomatoes

We are going to Whistler for a week, then I'm taking the Horseshoe Bay Ferry to Nanaimo and go up the North Island to fly fish for salmon with my bud, Sandy. We'll take two cars this year. I'm not sure how long I'll be up there because they will be getting ready to go to visit family, then head to AZ for the Winter. Normally I go in July but this year they went to the Yukon and Arctic Circle.

I did 7 more quarts today and tomorrow will make Ball's veg juice.

We stay at Twin Peaks across the street from Whistler Village. I fish out of Port Alice. I love it up on the North Island - as the locals call northern Vancouver Island.

I guess this is my last batch of tomatoes - depends on how much juice I make.

I did up the last of the tomatoes save a few for slicing. I got almost 9 quarts of veg juice using Ball's recipe. It tastes pretty good. I'm done canning for the year.

Yesterday we did a road trip to Yakima/Zillah and bought 9 lugs of tomatoes, peaches, green beans, sweetcorn, and 4 or five assorted 7# bags of split peas, barley, and beans.

Today the mrs is canning peaches and then I get started on the tomatoes. I need to find a good recipe for marinara to can.

I've got 21 quarts done and that was a little over two boxes. Nancy started on her roma project and is baking the tomatoes - Amelia's mom is coning over and they will make marina.

They got 7 pints of marinara done which Nancy sent home with Meg. She started another batch just now and when she was out bought two more lugs of roma's and a fukk flat of blue berries. She has her work cut out for her.

I did 14 more quarts of tomatoes this morning and when Nancy gets done with her sauce project I may make more. I dunno? I may wait till Monday and let some of these tomatoes ripen up a bit more. I have almost a box that needs more time to ripen and will probably juice them. I've got a several year's supply now and won't have to can any next season.

Here is the last batch of tomatoes and don't think I'll do any next year. Our tomatoes aren't doing much and the cold weather is moving in. We plan to make a batch or two of green tomato salsa just so they don't go to waste, not to mention the time and money sent growing them.

The last of our green tomatoes finally ripened and this morning made 5 quarts of tomato juice. I canned four and put one in the refrigerator for Bloody Mary's. There was one cup leftover which we shared. What I didn't know was my wife added some herbs to the mix as well as Aleppo pepper and this juice is not for the young. She just throws things in so not sure what her qualities were.
