That is an interesting video! I really liked the cinder block fireplace, and the idea of cooking the tomatoes over an outdoor fire. I don't have an pots that big, though. The basil leaves in the top of the jar is a good idea, too. I think processing in a boiling water bath would be a better idea than the covered box. If you didn't have the sauce super hot and didn't get it sealed in the jars really quickly, those towels just keep the temperature high enough to really encourage botulism.

I guess the USA isn't the only place losing some of its heritage. The story about walking to the farms from town, picking and carrying toatoes, then the entire community making sauce was amazing. Now everyone there just buys the sauce at a grocery.

I’m suspicious that the guy in the video may be straight out of central casting and may not really be Italian. I've never heard a real Italian person add an "a" to the end of almost every word he speaks and that is so stereotypical. Even still it was an interesting video with a nice message.
