It’s so nice to have more produce in the garden than I can use. It’s also nice to have a little red wagon to haul the stuff back up to the house (thank you, my sweet kiddos).
Start by dropping your tomatoes into to hot water for about 45 seconds.
Cool the tomatoes down by dumping them into some icy-cold water. Now, they will peel like magic.
Pretty roma tomatoes.
Bring them to a good, rolling boil.
Sterilize your jars and lids.
In go the tomatoes. Fill the jars so that the liquid reaches an inch from the top.
Don’t forget to wipe the rim with a clean cloth.
Add a lid.
Into the hot tub, boiling water bath. ;)
Listen for the jar to seal. Such a lovely popping sound.
A little summer to enjoy this winter.
It’s really that easy! Do be sure to follow the instructions in your canning book, as this post is meant to inspire and provide an overview of the process.
