  1. I love your jar photo!

    A few years ago, I bought a fancy pants food mill (multiple disks, etc) to replace the old one I bought at a yard sale when I was in college. After trying to use it a few times, I resurrected my old one and sold the new one in a yard sale. Yours looks pretty good, but I’ve never used one that wasn’t a pain with tomatoes.

    However, I love OXO products, so I may have to go look at that.

    Your finished result looks wonderful!

  2. I have a Foley mill. In all honesty, I hate using the damn thing–I feel like I spend more time scraping out skins than I would have spent blanching and peeling. Feh.

    I put up sauce from a crate of heirlooms a few weeks ago, a batch of red and a batch of yellow. Took all afternoon, but so delicious.

  3. Chris and Amy – it is good to know that it is not necessarily the brand. I did a second batch and it worked fine – a pain but did the job. I’m going to check with my mother-in-law who also cans to see what type she uses.
