Anyone who cans over 100 lbs of tomatoes is a very good person beanie!
In my house, the kids that are left - boys- and the hubby all prefer the Ragu they were raised on. And there's one sauce that starts with an F, I can't think of it, that is like 75cents cheaper than Ragu but I can pass it off as Ragu if they don't see the jar. We use maybe 2 cans of diced tomatoes a month.
I figured it out once and it's just honestly cheaper for me to buy the sauce and tomatoes we use than it is to buy the equipment and raise the tomatoes.
(Oh - I can justify anything
Although - I personally love homemade tomato sauce and fresh canned tomatoes.
