|Yes! I'm using the cottolin towels I wove.|
In summer, I had to rely heavily on Farmers Market for these forays into sauce making because I just don't have enough tomatoes ripening at one time to support the kind of production I needed to fill the freezer. We also saved broccoli and beans so we can have a locavore winter. You can see to the left some other plastic containers filled with farmer's market broccoli. I am experimenting with doing my freezing in reusable containers as I dislike throwing away heavy duty freezer plastic baggies.
