Boiling Water Bath Canning

Boiling Water Bath Canning – Including Jams, Jellies, and Pickled Products – Home – Virginia Cooperative Extension.

The people at Virginia Tech keep improving their sites.  Over the years when searching for gardening information somehow one of their sites always had the answer.  The above link is a useful reference for anyone interested in canning.

Update 8/25:  Forgot to water last night.  Everything was very dry at 1pm.  Canned 1 quart tomatoes using above method which cleared out all tomatoes.  From the looks of the plants I’m going to bringing in a huge haul of tomatoes tonight when I go up there.  Second growth tomatoes on the Big Boys are on branches well over my head (>6 feet).
