Since I have been layed up all summer, I have done nothing to add to my pantry. Our garden is being hidden with weeds. So we captured about 1 and half bushel of tomatoes. I began cooking them down and decided I needed tomato paste more than anything. I could get enough to last for 4 years. So it took 4 days. Toward the end I set my timer and stirred it every 4 minutes. so from tomatoes filling 2 20 quart pots it cooked down to 3 quarts. after cooked half way and put in a 8 quart pot. Cooked down even more, Now at 3 quarts. That equals 26 quarter pint jars. Next the rings will be washed, then the jars will be washed. Then the jars will be labeled with date and put on the shelf.
