The tomatoes here finished up early due to an abundance of rain. However, before the rain took over the crop, making them split before they ripened, I canned some roasted tomato sauce.
I was inspired by the post I found here.
I added a mixture of herbs from my little herb garden, mostly basil, chives, and oregano to their basic ingredients. I also made sure that I had enough vinegar added to provide the acid needed to can tomatoes.

This method was so much easier than the one I have used before, and I love the flavor of the roasted tomatoes. The house smelled wonderful while this was in the oven!
