#WW Tomatoes {Linky}

Processing tomatoes is almost an everyday thing. I'm pretty sure we go through the longest way to process them. 

  1. Pick Them
  2. Sun Bathe Them in the Windows
  3. Slice Them
  4. Boil Them
  5. Put Them in an Ice Water Bath
  6. Peel Them
  7. Deseed Them
  8. Put Them in a Big ZipLoc Bag
  9. Deep Freeze Them
  10. Can Them When the Deep Freezer is Full
I'd skip the deseeding part, but I'm an ultra allergy sufferer. I've read that the seeds are what bother many with allergies. They get stomach aches, and don't even know why. Tomatoes were on the list of foods to avoid - from my allergy | asthma doctor. I only am supposed to avoid them during the season, when they grow. The same goes with squash. 

If you are ever frustrated with - LIFE, just go through the whole process. Read my captions, and you'll understand.

...and no, I don't think the younger generation knows our Betty Boop! Now that the TV is a sign of that's all we got kids maybe they will if they watch oldie cartoons, but even that's debatable! Yes, I met Ms. Boop! Funtimes years ago! Sorry I had to run to the doctors! ANYWAY, so what is it that you make with the tomatoes? Stewed tomatoes or something? Yummmmmmm Sounds delich!!! My gramma use to do that too! Gramma came from Sicily so she's been canning tomatoes all her life. Mmmmm What I wouldn't give for some fresh like that. I'm gonna have to give it try one day real soon. I suppose I could get directions on line... unless you have some you'd like to share!?! Yummy! Good for you girlfriend! Have a great day and thanks for sharing this great post & pics!!! Stay healthy & stay safe! hugs

It's a lot of work, but growing and canning your own save you so much money! I like to save my seeds and regrow them organically each spring. Organic tomatoes are so expensive here, so I save a ton by growing my own.

@XmasDolly we just can the tomatoes themselves. Then the get used for sauce, soups, and salsa throughout the year.
