Canning video

This might be a little basic for this crowd, but here's a nice video on how to can tomatoes.  It was produced by some friends of mine at Ohio State.

Anyone have any helpful canning preserving tips or advice?

Re: Canning video

Already canned 28 qts but thought I would add that I have several friends who freeze tomatoes. Wash, core & throw in a bag w/skins on. Skins slip off when thawed to throw in Chili, etc. I am out of freezer space but sure would be easy.

Re: Canning video linda

No, corn has to be blanched and cooled!  Tomatoes and fruit are the only things I know that do not need to be blanched. That is put in boiling water and then cooled in ice water before freezing. I could not help but butt in, that would no work.
