Canning cherry tomatoes?

15 years ago

Hello all- my first post! I found this site last night, and I have been busy reading up and getting tips, so forgive me if this question has been answered before.

I am new to canning; teaching myself, and learning as I go! So far I have done blueberry preserves, peaches, pears, salsa, and garlic/basil tomato sauce.

Another first for me this year is gardening- I have never had a garden before, so again, learning as I go, but I planted 3 cherry tomato plants, and they are producing like crazy right now- I harvest about 30-40 tomatoes every day or so, and I don't know what to do with them! I am reading how people dry them here- is there a way to do that in the oven? I don't have a dehydrator.

Also, my main question, is how do you can them? I am only using a water bath canner right now- (a pressure canner is going on my Christmas list!). Do you skin them like a regular tomato? Any advice here is very appreciated!

Thanks, and I am excited to read more tips and recipes!
