Canning Day

What does one do with a 1/2 bushel of organic roma opalka tomatoes and a drawer-full of bitty tomatoes from the volunteer plants out front? Why, send the children out to collect whatever else looks red on the vine and fresh basil and oregano from the herb garden, of course. Then set to cooking.
8 hours later, we have 15 jars of spicy pasta sauce which the children will not eat because Jon decided to roast the drawer-full of City Fresh peppers inhabiting our refrigerator, chop them up and include them in the mix. Will make excellent holiday gifts for our friends who like the heat, however. More (non-spicy) sauce to follow...
