Remember those pounds and pounds of tomatoes that I froze this fall? Well, today IS Thursday...
Today I got four of the eight bags out of the freezer and went to work. I ended up with 11 quarts of juice and 2 1/4 quarts of paste. Tomorrow I plan to do the rest, and when it's all done, I'll mix it all together and make spaghetti sauce, etc., and then can it all at once.
After I had finished cooking the last batch this afternoon, I dragged out my big food processor (the one we got for our wedding over 12 years ago!) and started processing the paste. As it was working I started wondering, is it really worth keeping this monster in my cupboard so I can use it MAYBE once a year? I have another smaller one that does the job just fine... I decided to finish all the paste and then decide if I wanted to get rid of it or not. I processed three small batches of paste, and halfway through the third batch...guess what happened!
Yeah, it died! Dead as a doornail. Kaput.
I think I'll get rid of it. :)
