Hi I’m Dave Epstein , welcome to Growing Wisdom, My Kitchen; in my hand, jarred tomato sauce actually from last year, with the jar, a band, a lid and some great tomato sauce, you can can in a very short period of time. So let me show you how to do this and how easy it really is. So the first thing you want to do is you want to clean everything, you want to simmer the jars, the lids and the bands in hot water until we’re ready to put our product in the jars. So this is hot tomato sauce, it’s all complete and if you’re not sure how to make tomato sauce we have a great video on how to make tomato sauce. So it’s very easy, you get one of these jars and I like to use a pair of tongs for the jars, stir the tomato sauce so you get nice, even mixture, and you just want to put this in. Alright so we want to leave a quarter of an inch of space between the top of the jar and the top of the product. That helps 7keep the product preserved properly. Now also look at your jar if you see any air bubbles in there, just take a knife, it’s going to get those air bubbles out. The next thing you want to do, clean paper towel, wipe the rim. So next we’re going to take our ring, our lid out of the pot, dry off the lid and you want to place the lid carefully on the top, if it’s slippery at all you want to re-dry that rim, it needs to be nice and dry. Take your band, use your finger, put it right in the middle, hold it and put the band on, finger tight. Alright so, what just happened? Well, to give you a little insight, we were filming and the kitchen got so filled up with steam and heat, the camera basically said, “uh-uh, I’m not playing this anymore, shut down”. So it’s a week later, and what I was saying was, then you’re going to process it one more time in boiling water, and you know what? We’re not going to boil the water right now, but basically you put it in a pan of boiling water we put four, I can actually have four in this pan, cover that up, let that process for 10 minutes and then shut the boiling water off, let it sit, the lids will suck on down, label them and they’ll be good for a year or even up to 2 years. So if you want fresh tomato sauce that you make now and you want to have it in the middle of the winter, now you know how to can. It’s very easy, I always label mine so I know when I’m having this in February or January, I made it in August. Some back every week for all of our tips and some helps at Growing Wisdom.com
