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.
