Canning Green Tomato Puree
I recently canned green tomato puree using the following method. Is it OK for green tomatoes?
Canning Green Tomato Puree Using Quart jars.
- Chop, blend and cook tomatoes.
- Wash jars in hot water with soap and rinse well.
- Put jar in pre-steam pot and steam 10 minutes.
- Remove steamed jars, one at a time, keep others steaming.
- Fill with tomato puree and add two tablespoons lemon juice.
- Add teaspoon of salt and top off to an inch from top.
- Wipe clean rim of jar. Place lid on jar.
- Hand tighten band.
- Place in deep pot.
- Cover over jars with 2 inches water and boil 45 minutes.
- Remove jars, let cool till lid pops in.
- Remove screw bands and gently try to lift off lids.
- If lid stays firm canning is done.
- Let jars cool 24 hours and shelf.
Thank you Bob L.

As long as you're canning to safety specifications I doubt it matters if the canning done is in a quart size jar. I don't use green tomatoes for anything but there are lots of recipes for them out there including puree.
