Are you thinking about trying canning for the first time? I may try my hand at canning some tomatoes this year. I’ve been searching YouTube, watching videos of other people canning to see if I think it’s something I’d be able to do.

I found this particular video from the “If I can, you can” video series produced by Canning USA. It may not be the most exciting video, but watching it makes me feel like I'd be able to do this. The video details the tools and ingredients needed to make and can tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, whole tomatoes and salsa. It also shows how to do the canning. The recipes used in the video can be found on the Canning USA website.
