Learn to Can Tomatoes, using the hot water bath method
Your tomatoes are coming in now or you have been eyeing those red globes at the local farmers market. Either way you have way too many to eat fresh and would like to keep some of the summer’s bounty to savor this winter.
Tomatoes are one of the easiest vegetables (really a fruit) to use while learning to can. We will show you how to preserve your tomatoes for use in homemade cooking all year round. As a bonus, we will also make some jars with fresh herbs and lemons.
You will learn the basics of hot water bath canning and the importance of following strict sanitation procedures. Detailed instructions and recipes will be provided as well as a list of resources for your future canning enjoyment.
I will provide the tomatoes, but you are welcome to also bring your own. This will give you the opportunity to see the large variety of tomatoes available today.
