Well, I got my tomatoes canned! I got 11 quarts, which I'm quite pleased with.
I chopped them, and did a hot pack, with about 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 TBS vinegar in each quart. This is the same way I put them up last year, and they worked well in recipes that called for crushed tomatoes, as well as in chili and soups.
My sewing project required a trip to the store, so I didn't get as far along as I had anticipated. However, there's always tomorrow!
