“This comes from my Victory Garden Cookbook. When summer's harvest is coming to a close, this is a great way to wrap up the leftovers in the garden. This only makes 6 pints, so I usually double or tripple the recipe. If your a purist, you can omit the tomato paste and simmer longer to concentrate the flavor. I"m always in a hurry, so I use the paste.”
