Links: Tomatoes, No-cook Jams, and Winners

August 17, 2015(updated on October 18, 2023)

I may have bitten off more than I can chew. With just 48 hours to go before we leave for vacation, I picked up 50 pounds of tomato seconds. I’ve divided them into a few different categories for canning (salsa, pizza sauce, jam, puree), and I’m going to do my best to make them all happen before we leave for the airport at 4 pm on Tuesday. We shall see. Now, links!

  • I want to thank you for posting a recipe for peach peel jelly recipe. It is my very favorite way to eat peaches, even though it seems like the waste product. Totally YUM!!!

  • Good luck with all those tomatoes!! I’m picking up my own heirloom 2nds tomorrow & am looking forward to making a batch of that smoky tomato jam you posted last week 🙂

  • Good luck with the tomatoes… GO GO GO!

    It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who does panicky preserving before a flight 🙂

  • Loving that there are more like me out there that just love to prove we can fit food preservation into a busy life…I hurt my back on Saturday but was still determined to process the peaches and tomatoes that were languishing in my hot kitchen…can’t let a piece of produce go to waste once you get bitten by the canning bug!
