Well I have I think 11 Tomato plants. 5 Roma's, 3 Manitoba's, and 3 others that I can't remember the names of. The Romas are getting ripe but not enough at once I think to can them. If their are than they are going to have to be canned in small batches.

Does anyone have a good recipie for making and canning Spagetti Sauce?

Also a recipie and directions for canning whole, halves, diced, and tomato sauce.

I was told that Romas were the best when it came to doing spagetti sauce.

I will more than likely be canning all this in Pint jars since it is just me and my husband.


You only take from the land what your need.

Have you checked out the Ball canning site? Have you thought of freezing tomatoes? It may be easier when dealing with small batches.

I would get a copy of the current Ball Blue Book which has instructions and recipes for canning tomatoes. You can also check at the National Center for Home Food Preservation for the same information.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
