Take note that these tomatoes aren’t perfectly whole. We crush them a bit while packing into the jars to generate enough liquid to submerge the flesh. Sometimes it’s also necessary to cut a tomato into thirds or halves in order to finish off a jar and retain the proper amount of headspace.
(makes ~ 12 pints or 6 quarts)
