I know, but they won't get used. Pickled tomatoes I would do it anyways, but latter in the season. I would have to go buy the tomatoes then, now they are free and they are mine. So, I am not really complaining.

Do these go in the ketchup while canning or would you prefer to add them later?

I am almost ready to put the canners and stuff up for the winter. I have done roasted tomato sauce, pureed tomatoes, 'v-8' juice, strawberry jelly, green beans, pickled beans, refrigerator pickles, and I froze sweet corn and some tomatoes.

I found a recipe for maple pecan syrup that I am going to make for my Christmas baskets. I have 2 quarts of homemade maple syrup and several pounds of pecans, so all I need is the time!!
