When I do mine, I just cook down the tomatoes, run through a food mill to get rid of skin and most of the seeds. Put in some fresh basil and oregano, and I freeze it. This year I have a vaccuum sealer that I will use. I've also thought about canning, is one better than the other? Also, anyone have a special recipe for when you put tomatoes up? We picked last night and my stove is completely full of tomatoes. I've also thought about trying some smoked tomatoes for some sauce or soup, anyone ever try this?
