Canning Frenzy

My parents arrived home from vacation yesterday bearing gifts of....tomatoes. So today I got busy and started canning, because really, what else is one going to do with 60 plus lbs of tomatoes. The timing was really great because I have not done much in the way of canning tomatoes this year and have pretty much used up my supply from last year. That usually happens, I use a ton of tomatoes in just about everything from spaghetti sauce or chillis to soup.

My bowls of scalded tomatoes above: we're just getting started ;)

And finally...the finished product. I think I completed about 50 quarts this afternoon. Whew! I think I'll wait until the weekend to get started on the Antipasto.
