    You're welcome! I just made 18 jars this past weekend. I was thinking of making some southwest baskets for christmas gifts and including some homemade cooking mitts (with jalapenos on them, some cornbread mix (from the myo mixes pg on budget101.com ) and a few wooden spoons tied with raffia ribbon. I found some cute Fajita pans at world market for $3 each and by putting a couple of those with the salsa and cornbread make great family baskets for less than $10 total.

    It's nice to see someone else is thinking of the holidays during the heat of the summer.

    Quick question, how many tomatoes would you average at being 3 quarts? I'm going to be making 3 batches. Also, any idea on shelf life? I'm assuming at least a year.

    3 qts is about 15 large tomatoes. The longest is 12-14 months, after that.. I would toss it.
