Despite the odds, you've managed to get a pretty good tomato harvest. Now what? Even if you enjoy fresh tomatoes, you might find yourself with more than you can eat.

In today's episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I share:

  • Why I put priority on canning tomato products that normally come from a can, not a jar
  • The very first product I can
  • The other recipes I use each season to preserve enough tomato products to last all year
  • The tool that slashed my canning time in the kitchen (no blanching or chopping)
  • Another trick to avoid blanching
  • Which tomato products can be water bath canned, and which ones with which you must use a pressure canner
  • What I do at the end of the season when the tomatoes slow to a trickle, to make the most of the final harvest
  • PLUS, an update on what you can expect from the Beginner's Garden Podcast moving forward
