Today I started turning the 33# of tomatoes (yes, I harvested & put into the freezer, 33# of tomatoes from our little greenhouse crop!) into tomato sauce & eventually spaghetti sauce. I had taken all the frozen tomatoes out yesterday to allow them to be thawed today. It took me literally "hours to run them all through the 'Squeezo Strainer'", but as my daughter said "aren't you glad you have that Squeezo?". I have my 2 slow cookers - and they are both LARGE ones - filled with tomato juice / sauce to thicken. There is a large bowl waiting also to add to the cookers as the level in each drops until I have all of the tomato product being reduced to the desired thickness.
