I usually do not swear; there are simply better words out there to use that do the job just as well.
What isn't pictured very well here is a steam burn on my arm!!! When lifting the hot-water bath lid (to remove the pizza sauce), there was a delayed reaction from the time the steam hit my arm until the nerve registers in my brain reacted! Goodness gracious! I have the biggest empathy for burn victims; what utter pain.
After removing the pizza sauce jars from the cooker, I placed the stewed tomato pot on the burner to get it cooking for 10 minutes. I then went to put some burn salve on my arm before heading back to clean up some dishes from the last hour of processing....
I had forgotten all about the stewed tomato pot.
And there ain't no savin' a scalded pot of stewed tomatoes!
There go 12 pounds of tomatoes down the drain....
At least...lesson learned! I have now set the timer for every 15 minutes for me to get up to stir the spaghetti sauce. Once it reduces down some more, I'll set the timer for every 5 minutes. I'm NOT about to lose FORTY-FIVE pounds of tomatoes! LOL
I've already poured myself a glass of wine.
Happy Saturday evening everyone.
