Do you have some tomato plants growing in your garden or in containers? If you are a large crop, then there are various options to use to preserve tomatoes at home. A great way to have tomatoes on hand if no fresh plants are available is to make homemade canned diced tomatoes.
Making homemade canned diced tomatoes is not difficult to do and is not much different than canning other fruits and vegetables. You need to have a supply of mason jars on hand and a supply of tomatoes that have been properly prepared. This includes skinning, slicing and dicing.
You will use the water bath canning method to make homemade canned diced tomatoes. The tomatoes will take about 45 minutes to process in the water bath. All you need to do is set a timer and that make sure to let them cool for about 24 hours to make sure the cans are sealed.
