In 2007 when I lived with my dad, he'd buy delmonte organic jarred tomatoes (diced) by the case from Costco here in Chicago. Idk if they still have it but that is an option smile.gif

Best alternative is to find local grower who will sell you tomatoes for canning.  Roma tomatoes have fewer seeds.  I'm seriously planting Roman tomatoes next year to can myself with added Basil, Orageno and Garlic for flavoring to use in my home made soups and chili. Challenge is to find BPA free lids to use in canning.

In Canada you can use Weck jars for pressure canning, in the United States you can't. Must be something in the air. lol Read about how to do it at this website:

You can buy weck in the US, they just don't give instructions in pressure canning.
