My final recipe of the night was one I kept seeing in my Ball Home Canning book and just had not put it at the top of my list.

Bruchetta in a Jar! I just love making recipes that you can open and with one additional step its an instant appetizer. We seem to have lots of family get togethers and it is great to whip one up when I need it. I was fortunate to find organic Roma tomatoes at my local grower for a steal. They were a bit riper than I needed but I picked through and found plenty.
The brine for the tomatoes taste and smells extremely savory and this is a quick raw pack method for filling the jars with the Roma's.
Makes about 7 (8 oz) half pints
