    6 cans water
    3 – 4 large onions, chopped
    2 pounds ground beef
    1 clove garlic
    2 TB olive oil
    2 122 tsp salt
    Add water to tomato paste, stif until smooth and set aside. Meanwhile, fry beef, onions and garlic in olive oil. When done to suit (I rinse under boiling water to de-fat)
    add to tomato mixture. Add salt. Cook slowly 1 hour until fairly thick. Add water if needed. Pour into clean jars, leaving 1 inch at the top. Wipe rims, put on lids. Pressure can at 10 lbs pressure, 60 minutes for both pints and quarts.

    1 c cold water
    2 quarts tomato juice
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 TB butter
    1/2 tsp salt
    Mix everything except tomato juice, pepper, butter and 1/2 tsp of the salt. Mix them well, so everything evenly distrubuted. Make into egg size meatballs.
    Combine tomato juice, salt, pepper, and butter in a deep pot. (Omit salt if tomato juice is salted.) Heat, and add meatballs. Bring mixture to a good boil. Pack loosely in jars, leaving 1 inch at top. Pour sauce in to fill jars only 2/3rd full. Wipe rimsm, cap and process 75 min for pints, 90 min for quarts at 10 lb pressure.
