So I made the tomato sauce..and I was so proud. I didn't can it but I was going to store it in canning jars in the fridge. I started with 6 lbs. of tomatoes. It seemed like a lot – to someone who almost never cooks. Funny – it only turned into a jar and a half of sauce
And then after I cleaned the kitchen I realized I had ten more tomatoes hiding under the plethora of cherry tomatoes in the big bowl…I could've had another jar!
I can't imagine how many tomatoes come out of big midwestern gardens that people can them. The peeling of the tomatoes alone was an epic adventure.
