Canned Tomatoes

Gorgeous tomatoes out of the garden, waiting to be canned!

Being a Foodie is always about quality ingredients in our opinion.  We grow tomatoes, we can the tomatoes.  They're delicious straight out of the jar over pasta in the fall and winter and they are the perfect base for sauces when we want to make Italian food!

If you don't have a garden or you don't produce enough in your garden to can in jars, I suggest finding a local farm or market selling tomatoes by the pound and getting 30 - 60 lbs and canning them!  You won't regret it.  In fact, you may become dependent on them and panic if you run out of jars.  No need for a pressure canner, these babies use a simple water bath.

Home Canned Tomatoes, cooling.
For the record:  no, this really wasn't enough jars for this past winter :-)  We'll be doing more this year!
