   Quantity: An average of 12 pounds of tomatoes and 4 pounds of okra or
   zucchini is needed per canner load of 7 quarts. An average of 7 pounds
   of tomatoes and 2-1/2 pounds of okra or zucchini is needed per canner
   load of 9 pints.
   
   Procedure: Wash tomatoes and okra or zucchini. Dip tomatoes in boiling
   water 30 to 60 seconds or until skins split. Then dip in cold water,
   slip off skins and remove cores, and quarter. Trim stems from okra and
   slice into 1-inch pieces or leave whole. Slice or cube zucchini if used.
   Bring tomatoes to a boil and simmer 10 minutes. Add okra or zucchini and
   boil gently 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of salt for each quart to the
   jars, if desired. Fill jars with mixture, leaving 1-inch headspace.
   Adjust lids and process according to the recommendations in Table 1 or
   Table 2, depending on the method of canning used.
   
   Variation: You may add four or five pearl onions or two onion slices to
   each jar.
