“Recipe Zaar is a great site for inspiration. I started canning tomatoes about 5 years ago starting with my mum's recipe and changing it up a bit. There are many wonderful Canned Tomatoe recipes on Recipe Zaar and hopefully someone out there might appreciate mine. This recipe also makes a great 'quick' tomatoe soup - just pour the whole jar into a food processor, season and heat!”
