Canning Tomaotes

Our relief society had a canning tomatoes class the other night at Nicole's house. She has grown a ton of tomatoes and was so kind to host the event in her backyard and let everyone have some of her tomatoes. THANKS NICOLE!!!

Per jar you add 1 tsp canning salt, 1 tsp sugar and 1 T white vinegar. You boil the tomatoes until the skins start to peel of themselves and then take them out of the boiling water. Using a paring knife peel the rest of the tomato skins completely off and cut into pieces and put in jar. Make sure the rim is wiped clean before you seal it.

We then placed the glass jars into a boiling water bath. You can also steam them. That's it. Super easy!
