We scored two boxes of tomatoes at Country Foods last Friday. So Cletus and I canned them up today. We ended up with 8 qt jars and 4 pint jars, so 10 qts total volume. They look so pretty, like jars full of little red jewels.

I pressure canned these since I used quart jars. Takes less water and processing time. 10# for 10 minutes as opposed to 45 minutes in a water bath. If I had only a few pints I would have water bathed them. I used this post as a reminder about processing times and such.

First jar full.

Home canned tomatoes just taste so much better. And you know we’ll be having some meatballs and tomato gravy before she goes back home!

This has been a bountiful year all around. I’m so thankful for the variety that’s stocking our pantry this year.
