This little gadget came with my blender & attaches to it. It has a bigger blade...I guess its kinda like a food processor! It works great, I have used it more in the last 2 weeks than the whole time I've had it. *Side note* My mom & mom -in- law both have their blenders that they got when they got married (37 & 36 yrs.) And I already have had to replace my blender once in 12 years (probably about 4 years ago).
So I ran the tomatoes through here & then transferred them to a bowl
Then I used this ladle to put the tomatoes into the baggies. The ladle measured just about 1/2 a cup
I filled each bag with about 3 cups.
I ended up with 8 quart size bags of crushed tomatoes..can't wait to use them! But...I should probably use the canned grocery store stuff that is in my pantry. That way, when it's super cold & wintery, I can use my "fresh/frozen" tomatoes and they will taste so much better!
