Tomato Canning





Last week I canned my first batch of garden tomatoes. My dad grows so many that it's a shame to see any go to waste, and it's the best way to enjoy organic produce year-round. I'm not sure why I thought it would be so difficult or tedious to can, but it went pretty smoothly (and was actually fun!). I used this canning book as a guide & a little tool kit that Q picked up.

I canned them crushed, to be used for anything from sauces to soups. I also made a short list of produce worth taking the time to put up for the winter - so far it includes tomatoes, saurkraut, and pickles.

I've never really canned but I feel like this time of year is perfect for harvesting summer produce and storing them up for winter. I'd love to jam.

This makes me miss my garden! Sadly here in Berlin I have no wear to plant tomatoes anymore :( I have always wanted to can and also make homemade tomato chutney!

Oh I always thought canning was going to be complicated and never thought about trying it. But now I'd really love to make some jam or like you, canned tomatoes!
