    When I was able and had time to raise my own garden, Mom and I would put up about 200 qts a year of tomatoes... half of them in juice and the other half in tomato quarters. I haven't canned in a very long time, but I still have my food mill which saved me so much time. I also used it to make applesauce, and Mom and I put up 2 bushels worth in the space of 2 1/2 hours.

    Thanks for the memory refresher... ^5
