  We got enough ripe ones to start today. Used the Victorio strainer and we love it. It also works great for any kind of berry to remove the seeds.

We are getting bunches of tomatoes, mostly yellow so far but the reds are coming on also.  Got 3 - 5 gal pails full yesterday.  Large part went to the local nursing home.  We give all our excess away.  Only one way to eat tomatoes, cold sliced and fresh.  Will get into stewed tomatoes but have enough left from last year (got carried away) so not making anything.  Not into the salsa, or that kind of stuff.  Not fond of the tomato paste they put on Pizza either but will eat it if there is enough other stuff to mask the cooked tomato flavor.

Looks good can almost smell the sauce. We're disappointed this year with the maters...not enough coming in at one time. We tried a different sauce mater not happy with them. My wife did can some stewed with okra for soups. I showed my wife your strainer she said now that looks like a good one.

  Yeah, lyall, the Victorio works excellent for apple sauce. Just pull the stems, 1/4 the apples, boil 'em and crank 'em thru.
