I got out the canner. Then the jars, the lids, and the bands. Washed them all and put the jars, bands, and lids in simmering water.
Gathered heaps of fresh Roma tomatoes from my garden (not bad for only two Roma plants), fresh basil (also from the garden), onion, and garlic. Chopped, mixed, stirred, and simmered.
The house smelled like an Italian restaurant.
The result? Seven delightful pints of my homemade marinara sauce. Yum!
