The pantry is so sad and bare that I have been storing old cooking magazines and miscellaneous kitchen junk in there. All that is left of my 2016 tomatoes is these two jars of raw packed tomatoes, so to say that I am relieved to be picking up my first order of tomatoes tomorrow is an understatement.

Scouring kitchen surfaces and cleaning ALL THE THINGS today so that I can jump right in to canning tomorrow. I have 20 lbs of mixed tomatoes to contend with. Either going to do a raw-pack or sauce with the San Marzanos and the rest is getting used for shelf-stable salsa, enchilada sauce and some casera-style salsa for selling.

You can follow me and #tomatolandia over the weekend on Instagram and Twitter if you want to catch some of my progress.
