# of tomatoes in pint, quart
I'm brand new to canning this year and I have what I'm sure is an inexperienced beginner's questions, but here goes...
Is there a rule of thumb for how many small, medium or large tomatoes make up a pint or a quart?
Is it correct to assume that the initial count relates to unchopped tomatoes?
Or is the relationship defined after you chop them and get them into a measuring cup when the mass has changed?
I've seen in a thread here that someone said about 6 large are in a quart. I'm wondering if there is a similar relationship for the other tomato sizes.
Thanks for helping a middle-aged beginner.
