An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I took some time out from knitting to do some bottling. Jack has had a prolific crop of tomatoes in his garden. They're not very attractive tomatoes, but when they've been cooked up with onions, also from the garden, and a few other ingredients, they're fine. I freeze the tomatoes as the first step. Half defrosted, the skins come off easily and they can be chopped. Then I defrost them completely in a colander so that the water drains out. They cook quickly then because all that water doesn't have to evaporate off.
