This year I was able to can whole tomatoes for the first time. My friend gave me instructions on how she cans tomatoes in a hot bath. I do not have a pressure canner. I also got to make a batch of sweet banana peppers too. The leftover tomatoes I sliced and dehydrated to save for snacking and meals over the winter. This has been a productive season for my canning skills. I am looking forward to apples and pears for jams and sauces in the fall.
