99 Bottles Of…

You can only imagine how beautiful it smelled in my house the other day…..
Early we started our day long process of canning the 350lbs of tomatoes, and we never imagined it would be as long of a day as it turned out to be! Not everyone can stand the pressure you know….

Cutting tomatoes…..a lot like factory work…a job that requires you to pay attention but becomes so monotonous rather quickly. Of course one small moment of non-paying attention and soon you have a nice cut on your hand! OOPS!

Four large pots on the stove did the beautiful job of cooking the tomatoes down! The smell made it all worth it! A few spilled over pots made my stove BEAUTIFUL!

You can only work at one job for so long before you wish you could do ANY other job! The grass always seems greener on the other side, eh? I’m not sure it is, but in our case, we sure thought it would be a great idea.

You know, you start with a garage filled with tomatoes….and never think of just how beautiful and delicious that sauce it’ll make will come out to be!

Together, after 14+ hours, we created 78 quarts of tomato sauce! My family and my brother’s family will eat well this winter-don’t you think?!!

    I’ve been canning tomato sauce about once a week from what I get in my garden, but never have attempted this much at once. I’m impressed!
