It is TOMATO time!!!!
We have been getting some beautiful tomatoes! I know I have mentioned this before but I am the only one who enjoys eating tomatoes. and there is NO way I can make it through all the tomatoes we are getting.
This week I made 2 pints and 1 quart size jars of Stewed Tomatoes.
They look delicious and I can't wait to add them to stews and soups!!!!
Tomatoes - All sorts & sizes, peeled and chopped
1 small green pepper, diced
2 celery ribs, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 TBSP Raw butter
salt & pepper
Palm Sugar (just a little - maybe 1 TBSP)
For Canning - Carefully ladle hot vegetables into hot jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles with a Ball® Bubble FREER™, a nonmetallic spatula, or a plastic straw. Wipe rim and threads of jar with a clean damp cloth. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met - fingertip tight.
Process pints 15 minutes, quarts 20 minutes.
