How to cook tomatoes in tomato juice
Boil enough water to fill tomatoes. Tomatoes sort, stained or tainted put aside. Those that are intended for harvesting, put in a bowl or pan, pour boiling water for ten minutes. Then we change the water to a very cold one, we wait another five minutes.
Cutting the skin, remove it and cut out the bright spot where the twig was attached.
Put the tomatoes in a jar (pre-wash it and scald with boiling water). Cut very large tomatoes in half to fill the jar more closely.
Tomato juice poured into a saucepan. If the juice already has salt and sugar, boil it enough, if there is no salt and sugar, add to taste.
Give the juice to simmer for five minutes. Fill the jars with peeled tomatoes with boiling juice, completely covering them.
We will sterilize the jars in a deep wide saucepan, on the bottom of which we must put a thick cloth, a pot holder or a kitchen towel folded in two or three layers. We put the jars, cover the top with tin lids so that when boiling water droplets do not get inside.
Banks with a capacity of 700 ml. we will sterilize 15 minutes, liter 20-25, we count time from the beginning of boiling of water in a pan. We take out one by one, roll up the covers under the typewriter or screw up with threaded caps. We turn over, we cover with something warm and we allow to cool down gradually.
