Canning/Bottling
Fill each jar to 1″ below the top, stirring with each ladle removed to ensure the even distribution of the “goodies”, and cap immediately.
Once the lids “pop”, the jars are sealed.
Check the bands for tightness and allow to cool completely before storing.
Note that the tomatoes are neither peeled nor seeded, hence the tremendous flavor achieved and the added benefit of the fiber is not to be discounted.

I have a passion to cook and experiment, and have gathered recipes for almost 50+ years (paper and then electronic). I felt it an absolute waste to just toss all those wonderful recipes in the garbage and forget about them, thus decided to put them to good use and started “The Recipe Hunter” Facebook page: The Recipe Hunter (Cook &Enjoy) and the Blog
