Canned Tomatoes Recipe

Canned Tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • 35ish ripe tomatoes (field tomatoes)
  • 1 large can of Heinz tomato juice
  • 7 tsp table salt
  • 7 tsp white sugar
  • 1 Canner
  • 7 1L mason jars with new lids

Instructions:

  • Make sure all jars and lids are clean and sterilized in boiling water.
  • Blanch tomatoes (place in boiling water for one minute then remove).
  • Peel tomatoes and take out the leaf/stem.
  • Make sure the hard white part of the core is removed if that makes sense - lol.
  • Quarter the tomatoes (depending on the size you may cut them in six or eight pieces).
  • Place tomatoes in jars.
  • Add 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of sugar to each jar.
  • Top off with tomato juice to the neck of each jar.
  • Place lids on jars. Place jars in canner.
  • Make sure there is enough water in the canner (you want water just covering the tops of your lids).
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 22 mins.
  • Remove each jar and place on a counter to cool.
  • Wait to hear the satisfying “pops” of the lids sealing - lol.
  • #whenyouknowyouknow That’s it!! Make sure you have the proper tools for canning (the funnel for the jars, the thing to pull your jars from the boiling water,....). Also, in my opinion, you must use garden tomatoes 🍅
