Last year, I had over one hundred quarts.
After getting canning tomatoes from three different farmers at three different markets, I realized I was way behind and the season was drawing to a close.
I had made a few batches, but my usage was starting to catch up with what I had on hand and it was late in the season.
This Fall, I needed to make some more.
I checked around and found a local farm which had a sign for tomatoes and onions. I dropped by and bought 109 pounds of canning tomatoes and 38 pounds of onions. I was planning on two onions per batch of fifteen pounds of tomatoes, plus onions on hand for cooking.
We canned 43 quarts, which will last for quite a while. I will just have to augment as time goes on.
My husband wanted to measure how many linear feet of salsa we canned, so he lined them all up on the deck railing.
(I took a photo of him taking a photo of me.)
We have fifteen linear feet of salsa!
