This is 5 pounds of tomatoes. I collected these yesterday, and the same amount today. So, 10 pounds of tomatoes...
I found a recipe online for making pizza sauce...several ways, actually, over here. So I thought, heck...why not try it? I wanted to make 12 jars of pizza sauce for the winter.
Disclaimer - the recipe does say that plum tomatoes are best. But I didn't have plum tomatoes.
So 10 pounds of tomatoes, 4 hours or so (granted I was doing other stuff at the same time), a huge mess in the kitchen in which I use way way too many dishes to do this..and I got twoone-cup jars of pizza sauce. Rest assured, I will not be doing this again. Although, at the same site, there is a pizza sauce using oven roasted tomatoes (so you don't have to wait and wait and wait while it reduces). I will be trying that one next time. If there is a next time (*wink*). Come on now. We all know there will, in fact, be a next time.
Disclaimer 2: the "next time" won't be until I have lots and lots of crushed tomatoes canned up and run out of big jars. Just sayin.
