Kate, t11

As you know, we jar tomatoes every year.  My parents and their friends started it when we were kids and the tradition continues with my parents, their friends and all of my parents friends' children and our spouses.  Recently there have been some additions and people just drop in as the day goes to say hi and have a bite and a drink.  It's a fun day and a full day.  We eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together and as the sauce comes out we pour good olive oil, chopped feta and basil in a bowl and dip copious amounts of bread in it.  There are no assigned jobs as we all just move around to avoid boredom.  It really is one of my favourite days of the year.  What's better than friends, great food, a few bevy's and a nice big yield of great fresh sauce.
