Instructions
  1. Wash tomatoes well and place them in a large pot and cook over medium to low heat, stirring occassionally. Depending on how many you do, this will take any where from 20-30 minutes.
  2. When they are soft and they have released juices, turn off the heat. Using a sieve, press the tomatoes, a few at a time, through the sieve to release the juice. You will end up with tomato skins and seeds, which are great composted or I feed them to my chickens, they love them.
  3. Have your clean, hot jars ready. An easy way to heat your jars, place on a cookie sheet and put into a 300 degree oven for approx. 10 minutes.
  4. Put the hot juice into the jars adding a teaspoon of salt. More or less to your liking. Place a hot lid and ring on the jar and place into your hot water bath canner or use a pressure canner. That's my preference but use what you have.
  5. If processing using a hot water bath, bring water to a boil, place jars into pan, making sure the jars are covered and return water to a boil and process for 10 minutes. If using a pressure canner, process for 25 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.
  6. Remove hot jars and let cool, label and enjoy!

When I was at my Mom's recently, there was access to fresh spinach and beets from the garden. My brother's friend can't do too many raw vegetables, so this was a way to utilize fresh produce and accomomdate a cooked vegetable that isn't cooked too much. Hope you enjoy my adaption.

Instructions
  1. Place spinach in a large bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, olives, parsley and garlic and cook, stirring, until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add beets, vinegar, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until the beets are heated through, about 1 minute more. Add the beet mixture to the spinach and toss to combine. Serve warm.
Recipe Notes

Note: I peeled, cut and steamed the beets separately. This takes approx. 15 minutes as you want them slightly crisp, not mushy.

The original recipe, minus my tweaks came from Eatingwell.com
