2 large tomatoes, seeded and diced

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 2 hours. Uncover; cook 2 more hours.

Strain stock through a cheesecloth-lined sieve. Discard vegetables and seasonings. Ladle hot stock into hot jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Wipe rim and threads of jar clean. Place lid on jar and screw band down evenly and firmly, but don’t force it.
