  • Ripe tomatoes


  • Remove the stem ends and quarter the ripe tomatoes.
  • Put the tomatoes in a sauce pan that has a lid.
  • Cover them and let them cook until tender (10 to 20 minutes).
  • Cool the tomatoes completely, and then pour into jars leaving headspace.
  • For a quart jar of liquid, leave at least an inch empty at the top. If you don’t the jar could break.
