tomato season canning extravaganza!
love me tomatoes-and we all know they are at their peak. just last week i was at the farmers' market and noticed how they were selling at incredible prices!
NOTE at a farmers market: when items are super cheap=they are at peak of season and are about to be extinct until next season so buy up! i will go into pricing and produce seasonally, but let me tell you this-BUY TOMATOES NOW!
i am taking advantage of this fantastic time to buy up every last ounce of heirloom tomatoes at the Irvine Farmers' Market...beware! the best deals happen at the END of the market, especially with SUPER-PERISHABLES like tomatoes, they are like 2-day diamonds!
I am going to preserve the bounty at a friend's house in LA, teaching pressure canning while preserving the peak of the summer season...watch out!
