1 pk tomatoes sliced is how I read that first line

Hi! I think I can help with the ???.

1.) 1 peck tomatoes, "sliced"

2.) "put spices" in loose i.e. not in a packet like a bouquet garni.

I love this blog! Hope this helps. :)

I think that last word is spices...put spices in loose (as opposed to in a bundle of cheese cloth as is frequently done with pickling spices) But then again I am probably wrong.... But it looks like a great recipe and a way to use up the tail end of the garden and tomatoes.
