  • How do you can Tomatoes?

  • There are two ways to can tomatoes: in a boiling water bath or in a pressure canner. A pressure canner is different from a pressure cooker, which is not safe for canning. Pressure canners have a dial gauge or a weighted gauge and a rack for the jars. They are also larger than pressure cookers and fit at least one layer of quart jars.
