Doing tomatoes aka "Italian Job"

Well, it was my first experience of preapring italian homemade tomato sauce.
This sauce is so great and you can use it for a whole bunch of differnt dishes - pasta, pizza, chili, minestrone etc..there are too many to list it here.
The sause itself is very simple to make. Let's start..here are the pictures-

Just buy
(1 bushel makes about 15 litres of the sauce)
jars and lids
so, rinse the tomatoes and boil them for about 12-15 minutes or untill they are soft.
Put the tomatoes through the strainer, so the skins will peel by themselves and you will get the sauce you want.
Rinse the jars and pour the sauce, cover with the lids very tight.
In a big pot put all the jars together (very tight, so there is no room left - if there is a lot of room, put any type of cloth in the pot to create almost vacuum, cover the jars with a piece of cloth very tight as well, then add hot water just to cover the lids of the jars. Cover the pot and boil the jars for 30 minutes.
