In recent years, there has been increasing interest in home food preservation. Canning is one method of food preservation that allows you to enjoy garden tomatoes all year long. While this method of home food preservation has existed for centuries, we have learned a lot about the science behind this practice in recent years. Home Food Preservation: Tomatoes & Salsa will explain the scientific reasoning behind today’s recommended methods for making and processing tomatoes and salsa while dispelling food preservation myths and unsafe practices of the past.
This workshop will review the following:
- The basics of water bath and atmospheric steam canning for processing tomatoes and tomato products.
- The latest canning recommendations related to acidifying tomato products.
- Use of research tested recipes in canning salsa and other tomato products for safety.
- Fruit salsas.
