Canned Tomatoes

Canned Tomatoes
I did my first-ever canning yesterday, Monday actually. I had a bunch of tomatoes and did them up in 7 pint jars. There was enough juice left over to do 1 pint of tomato juice, so when the 7 pints were finished in the canner, I cooked the juice for 85 minutes as well. My parents canned stuff all the time and although I helped prepare the foods for canning, I never really paid attention to the cooking part. A quick browse on the internet refreshed everything in my mind that I needed to know. I remembered my parents doing all the things it took to can tomatos and it was a snap.

We always canned whole tomatoes. Unfortunately, I don't have the garden space to make it worthwhile where I live now. I would just throw them in a blender if I needed juice.
