Wow, Daffy, great harvest. I did some peaches today. Are they tomatoes in the other bottles? If so, what did you do to the tomatoes before you put them in the bottles?

Mostly I cut them up into a stock pot with salt til mushy then bottled.

But I did a few bottles of:

Salsa- Roma tomatoes, onion, capsicum, garlic, basil, tomato paste to thicken.

Quetta- tomatoes, garlic, ginger, sugar, vinegar, flour to thicken

YUMMO, I was mummy queen for the afternoon!!!!

Thanks, Daffy. I've been freezing all the salsa but now I know I can Vacola bottle them instead. It will take up less freezer space.

Because the background there is plain it would be easy to clone it out. I'm happy to give you a hand if you need it?! :)

What I should have done is "crop" it out of the photo! Might get to it.
