"I love this.. It is so easy and good! I found this recipe 2 years ago and am I happy I come across it. I planted more tomatoes this year so I am going to have plenty. I put this in soups, chili, ham and beans, pasta salads and I make breaded tomatoes with my zesty tomatoes. I always make so many chopped, crushed or chunky tomatoes so I have plenty to choose from for what ever I am cooking. Thanks for this. I was discouraged canning the good old way... This gave me some confidence back."

"I've been making this for years. It is a wonderful, flavorful base to use for chili. Just add beans and ground beef and a can of tomato soup, if you'd like - no additional seasoning necessary. I've shared the recipe with friends and they rave about it, too."
