Ingredients
  1. 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pounds tomatoes per quart
  2. Bottled lemon juice
  3. Pickling salt
Instructions
  1. Prepare standard canning jars and lids according to manufacturer’s directions.
  2. Peel and core tomatoes. Leave whole or cut into halves or quarters. When all tomatoes are ready, prepare one jar at a time, keeping the other jars hot while you work.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 teaspoon salt to each quart jar (half the amount for pints).
  4. Pack tomatoes into jars, pressing gently on tomatoes until the juice fills the spaces between tomatoes. Leave 1/2 inch headspace.
  5. Remove air bubbles.
  6. Wipe rims of jars and apply two-piece canning caps.
  7. Process in a boiling water bath 85 minutes for both quarts and pints.
