This is such a wonderful canning recipe. I use these tomatoes for "everything" from my Spaghetti sauce, soups, stews to Salas's. My DH & I love putting them up as this recipe was handed down to my DH's from his grandmother. My DH helped make this canning recipe with his mother for years it is a favourite of his and mine! We get our tomatoes from a farmer's family who have grown beautiful hot house tomatoes for year's. I was told by my MIL & DH that I had incorrectly titled the tomato recipe OOPS! Bon Appétit!
