In the last autumn days, do not be lazy and close a couple of jars of tomatoes according to an interesting recipe. Finnish-style tomato harvesting is done with a minimum amount of vinegar and therefore preserves the natural taste of vegetables.
We recommend that you open the jars for the New Year and enjoy the smell of a generous autumn. For the recipe, you will need ripe tomatoes with juicy pulp. When choosing vegetables, pay attention to their w8. A medium-sized tomato should weigh about 150 g. Light (empty) tomatoes will not work. You can use white or red onions in the preparation.
