Water Bath Canning: Tomatoes, Salsa and Such is a 4-hour hands-on workshop that addresses water bath canning with a specific emphasis on the proper way to home can tomatoes, salsa, tomato juice, and other tomato products in a water bath canner.

The workshop will begin with a basic discussion of home canning and the safety considerations involved with this method of food preservation. We will talk about the kinds of equipment needed for water bath canning* and how to operate a water bath canner properly. Participants will have the chance to practice hands-on techniques when they get into the Extension demo-kitchen to can tomatoes and prepare salsa. Participants will receive guidelines for acidifying all varieties of tomatoes safely and will go home with lots of canning recipes for tasty tomato treats!

Dates:
Two sessions of Water Bath Canning: Tomatoes, Salsa and Such will be offered. Each session is the same so you need only sign up for one date:

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

* Please note: Tomatoes may be canned in a pressure canner, too, but this workshop does not address pressure canning. For more information about how to use a pressure canner, please see the description for the Basics of Home Canning workshop. Those who prefer using a pressure canner for canning tomatoes might still like to take this workshop, however, as it provides an update on current guidelines for preparing, acidifying, packing and processing tomatoes to keep products safe. Those guidelines would be the same whether you used a water bath or a pressure canner.
