August is in full swing and there are tomatoes everywhere. If you planted a few tomato plants, you might be wondering what you can do with tour bumper crop of tomatoes.  No worries, here are just a few tips for canning tomatoes.

While tomatoes are most delicious fresh, there’s no way to use them all up as they ripen, unless you only planted a couple, and you have a large family.

So what can you do with your extra tomatoes? Can them, of course!

Before you start, make sure you have the tools you need for canning:

  • jars, lids and bands
  • a tomato strainer (if you have a lot of tomatoes to process, this could save your sanity)
  • pressure canner
  • jar lifter, a funnel, and some clean towels

Look up some recipes, and you are in business.

Here are some of my favorite recipes to can tomatoes:

  • tomato sauces (I make a few different types)
  • salsa
  • whole tomatoes
  • diced tomatoes
  • green tomatoes
  • cherry tomatoes
  • roasted tomatoes
  • stewed tomatoes
