As the Summer season arrives there is no doubt the highlight is preserving fresh tomatoes from my home garden.  In this post I share the items you will need to preserve tomatoes in your home.

Canning Tomatoes Part 1

This video is from my home garden in 2010.  Video on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/brenhaas

  • 33 quart ( or larger) canner pot kit.
  • 1  – 15 quart or larger ceramic pot

Happy Canning,


  1. Great stuff, dear Bren. I’m amazed how you do it all! My mother was a huge canner and I helped her but she also was an amazing seamstress, vogue patterns (she made all of our clothes and designer coats on a treadle sewing machine), 2 of her talents I did not inherit. I did, however, inherit her love for cooking and gardening … so all is not lost on me 🙂

    1. well…. my floors in the house are swept but they are due a good DETAILED scrub! That is the secret to doing all the canning, seeds, greenhouse,veggie garden and all. THANK YOU JOEY. 🙂

  2. Bren,
    I love your videos! Great job! I enjoyed seeing you in the garden and you shared valuable information. I’ve never canned vegetables before but I may after I finish watching your series!


  3. Great job Bren!

    My wife does all the canning around here and does it pretty much like you’ve got it videoed here. I got a recipe for homemade catsup this year and my wife made some, DEE LI CIOUS!!

    (I noticed a yellow strainer in your sink, we have one just like that.)

    1. That yellow strainer is from the early 70’s. It came from my Dads’ kitchen and he use to use it to do canning too! Great eye TC – thanks for the memory. Isn’t this the best time of year? Thanks for leaving a comment!

  4. Hi there, Will you be publishing a follow-up article? The partner and myself have put in some time exploring over your web page and surprisingly enough you touched on one thing i was referring to just the other day with our son’s football coach. We often hear ourselves quarrelling with the littlest of things, isn’t it silly?
