|Amy at step 1 - heating tomatoes so skins would slip off.|
My daughter, Amy, and son-in-law, Dan, are on a mission. They are starting on September 22 (the fall equinox) to eat only what they can find within a 100 mile radius of their home in Seattle for one full year. You can follow their quest to become "locovores" on Seasonally Seattle.
Since they couldn't face a week without tomatoes, and tomatoes aren't available locally year round, today they brought two flats of tomatoes to our house to learn the art of canning.
|Step 2 - Dan peeling and paring and packing tomatoes in jars|
Part of the fun is working together to produce the beautiful jars of bright red tomatoes.
Follow Amy and Dan's progress on their blog, http://seasonallyseattle.blogspot.com where they will share sources, budgets, recipes and more.
