Community Tomato Canning

Novice & new-to canners welcome! This “class” is about learning while doing.  Together we will “put up” at least 1 quart of tomatoes per person.  Along the way, we’ll demonstrate different approaches to tomato canning, discuss the possible risks & how to mitigate them, and have a lot of sweaty tomato juice-filled fun along the way.

The product you take home will be most similar to 1 quart of crushed tomatoes.  We will also have tomato sauce and juice puree on the stove for demonstration & discussion.

We are providing the supplies, including farm-fresh tomatoes and jars, for use during the class.  You’ll go home with a minimum of a 1 quart jar of tomatoes and the confidence to tackle tomato canning on you own in the future.

***There are two price options.  The first one, we provide the tomatoes.  The second one, you bring 10 pounds of tomatoes with you.

We are experiencing technical difficulties with our checkout process. As we work to eliminate variables, please use this link and PayPal button to purchase your space/s in class. You will not receive a ticket nor an email confirmation upon purchase. Thank you for your patience as we work to identify and resolve the issues.
