I survived the tomato canning. Other than the frustration of being up until after midnight to put tomato sauce in jars, the other frustration?
3kg of tomatoes = 1 L of sauce
That is two 500 mL jars, if anyone is counting. 'Cause I am.
We go through tomato sauces at a rate of at least two jars every couple of weeks to a month. So, this tomato sauce isn't going to last long.
The good news? It tasted pretty good, and it smelled delicious, and it sealed just perfectly. So, that is good. But I'm thinking, maybe it is too much work to grow all those tomatoes for TWO JARS of sauce.
As fishy said, it's a good thing we are not pioneers. We'd definitely starve.
