Canning Tomatoes

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 August 30, 2017 Grand Ely Lodge

9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Home-canned tomatoes can be used about any way your culinary imagination takes you! They are delicious in sauces, blended for juice, eaten plain or as an important ingredient in soup. You’ll learn how to preserve this powerhouse of nutrients: how to remove the skins, pack the jars, and use a boiling water bath to cook and seal the tomatoes. For those interested in using a pressure canner, one will be available (with instructions). Plan to bring two empty quart jars of your own to fill with tomatoes to bring home.

About the Instructor: Mary Louise Icenhour is an Ely native and retired teacher who loves to share her passion for traditional skills.  She also teaches our other canning classes, Slovenian Walnut Potica, Apple Strudel, Pasty and Pine Needle Basketry classes
