Canning Tomatoes

Finally!  Lots of tomatoes ripened this week and I was able to make a nice batch of hot-packed canned tomatoes. 

The first time I ever canned tomatoes I think I spent almost a day getting everything prepped, cut, cooked, and then canned.  I must be getting speedier with practice because I managed to get 8 pints canned in about 2.5 hours!


  1. Great job! I'll be canning some tomatoes this afternoon. Tried it last week thinking I'd get 5 pints out of what I had and actually only got 3 and one of those didn't seal! Bummer. But I have more tomatoes today :-)
