Fill each jar to 1″ below the top, stirring with each ladle removed to ensure the even distribution of the “goodies”, and cap immediately.
Once the lids “pop”, the jars are sealed.
Check the bands for tightness and allow to cool completely before storing.
Note that the tomatoes are neither peeled nor seeded, hence the tremendous flavor achieved and the added benefit of the fiber is not to be discounted.
