My youngest sister Mary and I made a huge batch calling for 56pounds of tomatoes which took an entire day. Whew!! Our family typically serves this with pork and sauerkraut or meatloaf but there are many other possibilities such as hamburgers or pot roast. I usually double the recipe as peeling 14 pounds of tomatoes takes some time. Just bring a large pot of water to boil, drop in tomatoes and when they start to blister remove, cool and peel.
