Canning Green Tomatoes EASY!
Green tomatoes are acidic enough to be sliced and canned, then later used for fried green tomatoes. I have ton of green tomatoes this year (brought the plants inside too many times), and I'm too lazy to make pickles or relish etc., so, just do this, it's easy !

# Slice green tomatoes into pint jars.
# Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each jar.
# Cover with boiling water.
# Put lids on tightly and put in water bath canner.
# Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes.
# Remove from canner, re-tighten caps and cool on counter top.
# Can also use quart jars, adding 1 teaspoon salt.
(after a day, you can remove the outer rings and test for seal, then store in a cool place)

If you slice then thinly, place them on paper towels & salt them a few hours before cooking they will come up very crispy. The salt draws out the water so they will not be as soggy.

I am going to be canning for the first time today, I'm so excited. I'm starting with my homemade applesauce, something my kids eat and frequently ask for. If it goes well, I will can everything I get my hands on. I hate buying stuff at the store and I love going to the farm stand, I know the farmer well and I know there aren't all sorts of nasty chemicals on his produce. At this point I do not grow enough to have extra, but I will next year.

Re: Canning Green Tomatoes EASY!
Hmm. You don't need a canner, any decent sized pot and a dish or plate set at the bottom (so your jar doesn't sit directly on the pots floor) will work.

You forgot water in the jar. All foods should be filled with hot water (boiled water) to about 3/4 to 1 inch below the rim of the jar.

Also add that one should cover the freshly boiled jars with one or two towels. Leaving space between the jars (about an inch) and let them slow cool. This ups the chances of a real vacuum seal and helps prevent jars from breaking if a cool breeze comes along.

If you stick around the jars will talk to you as they cool, the forming vacuum causes the lids to be sucked in and that makes pretty metallic sounds.

Things to try - Add other things to tomatoes, onion, beans, zucchini, bell peppers - or if you dare 1-2 of your hot chili peppers (whole, no need to dry, crush and cut) and you can bath can those as well. A decent ratio is 3 parts, 2 parts tomato 1 part whatever else.

Use Koshering Salt or sea salt - no iodine added for better flavor. Don't like salt, try herbs and other spices.

If you grow your own herbs, then cut off a few leaves and add whole leaves to the jar, 1-2 leaves of oregano, basil and sprigs of parsley make the jar look pretty. The process of canning and storing means as time goes by the whole leaves will flavor the contents.

A few whole pepper corns will pepper the whole jar.

Really, you are going to start with apple sauce? I hope the labor doesn't turn you off the whole notion of canning.

While I admire your enthusiasm. You have to understand that making apple sauce is one of the tougher, hard work things to make.

You need to peel, core then grind apples. This is labor intensive.

If you do not have a corer/peeler and grinder, then might I suggest you start off with diced apples?

With diced apples you pretty much slice, core and dice (no peeling needed) then cook your apples as you would for a quick apple pie - meaning you cook them in a lemon-juice water mixture until a fork pierced them easily (the meat, not the skin). Remove the apples and add a touch of brown sugar and spices and make the syrup.

Extremely good! Just make sure they are fully green, slice, salt the & let sit for a couple hours to remove the excess water, pat them with paper towels, roll in flour or cornmeal, deep fry. Make sure oil is very hot before adding the tomatoes.

You are so right about not needing a special water bath canner. If I am canning just a few small jars of say hot peppers or something, I will use my pasta pot. My grandmother would fold several layers of clean dishtowels to place in the bottom of the pot to set the jars on. Always worked for her & has always worked for me.

Re: Canning Green Tomatoes EASY!
It is used only for highly acidic canning. Things such as tomatoes or veggies/fruits you are canning in vinegar.

It is like a very large stock pot with a jar rack -- if you look a few posts up we discussed how to make one of a regular pot. Just make sure the pot is tall enough to cover the top of the jars by about 1.5 inches of water.

Do a google search. There is a lot of detailed info out there. It is important to process the jars the proper amount of time contingent upon what you are canning.

It is a fun and rewarding job. I love eating food I grew and canned myself. :o)

I make applesauce about once a week for my children, so trust me, I know it's a pain in the backside. This is why I want to make a huge batch and can it.
