Ohio Cooperative Extension Tomato Canning Info
Fabulous recipe for homemade tomato paste: uses an oven roasting technique that is easy and produces fantastic results. Can then be canned or frozen as you wish (they show storing it with olive oil on top for safe keeping but this method is not approved by Ohio Extention so we prefer canning or freezing using approved methods).
