How to can tomatoes

If you haven’t canned tomatoes before (or even if you have) you may think canning is too much work.

But there’s a way to can tomatoes that takes a lot less effort. Especially if you plan to use canned tomatoes in soups, sauces, chili, and casseroles.

Here’s a page that gives you simple, step-by-step instructions that explain this easier way to can tomatoes:

Share ways you use fresh tomatoes!

Do you know any good recipes that use fresh tomatoes? Salads? Soups? Sauces? Chutney? Grilled, stuffed, or baked tomatoes? Green tomato recipes? Anything else that uses fresh tomatoes as an ingredient?

Our readers are looking for ways to use up the ripe tomatoes sitting on the counter. It would be great if you have a personal recipe to share on our new Tomato Recipes page.

You can add your recipes here:

That’s it for now. See you next time.

Until then, happy gardening!
