Here are the tomatoes cooking:
When they were all tender, I strained them with my Foley Food Mill (worth it's weight in gold!) I bought mine many years ago and it is tinned steel, but now they make them out of stainless!
Here is all that was left from all of those tomatoes. This is the skin, seeds and cores:

SO!!! I added 2 cans of tomato paste!
See how much better it looks? (The taste is much better also.)
I added 2 Tablespoons of RealLemon lemon juice to each quart jar and 1 teaspoon of sea salt:
Then I processed the jars for 40 minutes in my steam canner. A water-bath would work the same.
Here are the 6 jars. It really is delicious, by the way.
I wanted to show you this in case your tomatoes are dying too.
