Tomato Jarring

on February 4, 2014

What a fun and busy weekend we’ve just had.   As seen in a previous post,  we have had rather a glut of tomatoes and more to come.

There are only so many tomato, chorizo, and cherry tomato salads that we can manage, so preservation is the way to go before they all go off.

A quick trip to the wonderful people at Costante Imports later and we return with jars and lids aplenty (as well as a fantastic new pizza peel) and some advice we got to work.

I’m not sure what happens regarding lemon juice,  I’ve been told different things and preserving the Italian way does not seem to consider it essential or mention it in my addition.  So I went with a mix of both.
