^^^ If I want to have enough to last through the winter, at least 72 pints of tomato sauce + another 72 spaghetti sauce. I'll go through at least 24 of each when my family, kids and grand-kids 'invade' my house during Thanksgiving week and Christmas week alone !

I plan on doing torn, whole, tomato juice, ketchup, regular sauce, spaghetti sauce, Beyond Hot Salsa (from a book of mine), Charred Salsa (from another book of mine), Chipotle BBQ sauce, & Peach BBQ sauce. I know I'll only make 4 pints each of the BBQ sauces & prolly the ketchup too...but the others, it depends on how much time I have...
