Still juicing tomatoes

There are some things we do that we can't imagine NOT doing them.  Juicing tomatoes is one of those things.  It doesn't even matter if we haven't used up our store of home canned juice.

This year, having taught all our daughters and sons how to use a canner to make delicious, sweet, and fresher tomato juice, Carolyn turned her attention to those in our ward who have been co-workers in the ward garden and now have more tomatoes than they know what to do with. Francine was over a couple of days  ago.  It was almost like a day at the Deseret Industries canning complex.

I don't know if Carolyn will eventually reach 70 quarts like we have some years but my guess is we'll have a couple dozen and enjoy them.


  1. Have you ever considered getting the juicer attachment for your Kitchenaid? We've been pretty happy with ours. You still have to plunge, but it does all the turning for you.

  2. Sounds like a good anniversary gift for me to get Carolyn.
