I grow hundred of tomatoes every summer and this was a great was to conserve the ones I couldn't use right away. I found that I didn't get enough natural juices to fill the entire jar. Swishing the tomatoes as they went into the jar helped, but I did have to top a few of the jars with water. I used a pint in some homemade chili, and the were great! Thanks!
