|Some funky tomatoes this year, but they didn't affect the quality :)|
Tomatoes; batch 1
|became this first batch of 16 quarts and 4 pints of spaghetti sauce.|
|became 13 quarts and 8 pints of sloppy joe sauce.|
(4 quarts and 8 pints salsa not pictured)
(pint and quart jars inserted for size reference)
|became 16 pints of diced tomatoes|
10 quarts of salsa
20 quarts and 17 pints of spaghetti
...with a bit left over
There are still a ton of tomatoes in my garden. I've given buckets to my sisters, and am debating trying a batch of ketchup, though I'm a bit canned out.
(update--Batch 4 on Friday gave us 7 quarts and 7 pints more of salsa. I did try the ketchup and though it was pretty good, the time sacrificed was not worth the yield for one batch.)
Till next year...
