Directions for: Anne Willian's Home Canned Tomatoes


fresh whole tomatoes

thyme sprigs

bay leaves

onion slice


1. Pack whole tomatoes into quart/litre jars with a few thyme sprigs, a couple of bay leaves, and an onion slice or two. Close the lids and set the jars on a rack in a deep pan.

2. Add enough water to cover generously. Weight the jars down with a brick (or a heavy pot lid) so they don't float.

3. Simmer for an hour and a half until the tomatoes lose their shape and collapse.

4. Let the jars cool in the water so that they form a tight seal.

5. When done, each jar will look only half full of tomatoes.
