Back in August when it was hot and sticky outside, friends Patty Lubin, Marilyn Eichner and I, sweated it out while canning over 60 quarts of "red gold" (aka crushed tomatoes)...okay, there was air-conditioning, but you get the point. Of course, winter was looming...and here we are, cold January days. What better way to use these precious garden tomatoes than in a huge crockpot of chili when the wind is howling and the temperatures are frigid?
If you canned last summer, are you using up your jars of goodness?
BSoleille! The bright side of a taste of summer on a cold winter day.
