Canning Tomatoes

John is growing tomatoes this summer....many, many tomatoes. He has 11 plants of Romas and each weekend he brings in around 20 pounds of tomatoes. We spent one weekend, blanching tomatoes to get the skin off, and then freezing them. Got 4 one gallon freezer bags full. Last weekend we decided to can the tomatoes. 20 pounds of tomatoes will give you 7 quarts of canned tomatoes. I am not sure if we will freeze or can this next weekend....will keep you updated.

Thanks for stopping by.
