The Easiest Way to Peel Tomatoes

Are you canning lots of tomatoes this year?  I am!!  For certain things, like making sauce, you can just chop them, puree them and go (I also like to seed them, though).  But for other things, you really need to peel them too.  And peeling tomatoes can be very annoying.

There are two methods: cut the peels off the tomatoes with a very sharp knife (which takes FOREVER).

Canning Tomato Sauce

Tomato sauce wasn’t even my first project, but it was the one that weighed most heavily on my mind. While friends were gathering up strawberries and other earlier crops to make jellies and jams and all sorts of things, I was just waiting. My family won’t eat jellies and jams so there was no reason to make any. But tomato sauce! We go through that like crazy! It was one of the biggest things I’ve planned to can and no, I am STILL not done! But I actually did this one in a few different stages so I “perfected” my technique a bit. I’ll share with you the way that I did it, and explain why some of the other ways are not my preferred way. Here we go…be prepared to get messy!

Canning for Beginners

Canning.

It’s addictive.  At least for me!  And it’s not nearly as hard as it appears to be.  I was so excited to try but so intimidated to start.  It seems like you need a LOT of supplies, and it will take a LOT of time, and be easy to screw up.

Recipe Collection: Herb-Roasted Potatoes

As I was roasting a chicken to make the week’s meals (gravy, stock, etc.) I thought…I bet some yummy herb-roasted potatoes would be great with this. I’d just gotten some very delicate, organic Yukon gold potatoes from our CSA so I was dying to try it. Ben wasn’t a fan, but the kids loved them and so did I. So here they are:
