i'm no quitter. so i tried again.
and because i was determined to make this batch better than the last, i made a few modifications. first, i seeded my tomatoes.
and since with the seeds, comes a whole lot of liquid, i decided to be a bit more vigilant on the time. i checked them at 4 hours and did a bit of rearranging. since the tomatoes varied in size, some were more done than others.
and after about 30-45 minutes for the beefier tomatoes, they were all done...success!
(sorry the picture's kinda weird...i've had all kinds of trouble getting things uploaded. i think it's our internet.)
