Thurs 08.06.09 – The Callis’ are currently awash in home grown tomatoes, as evinced by Bird’s Tomato Stand. I suggested last week that we make some homemade tomato sauce with a bunch of the tomatoes and then can / preserve it for later use.
Today, Bird, Tammy and I made a big pot of tomato sauce, simmered it for over 4 hours, and then this evening I canned them. Right now the jars of tomato sauce are in the hot water boil/bath to process them.
This is a first run to see if the experiment is successful, if so, then next week when more tomatoes ripen we will can a second batch of homemade tomato sauce.
