Last of the tomatoes.............

Canned sauce in Weck's canning jars (BPA free)
Tuesday, November 8, 2011

It is a beautiful time of year, but also sad.  The grass is green, the trees colorful, the warm season veggies giving their final harvests.

I picked the last of the tomatoes last week end right before our killing frost.  Any that have a tinge of color will ripen on the counter.  The pure green can be wrapped in newspaper to ripen.  You can have red tomatoes at Christmas!
I canned the ones that ripened in my Weck canning jars.  These jars are great!  They are a modern version of the old fashioned Ball jars with glass lids so no worries about nasty chemicals coming into your organic, home grown goodness.
