This is an easy way to can green tomatoes for frying. It tastes better than freezing tomatoes to fry.
Assemble all equipment and utensils. Place boiling water bath canner, filled half full with water, on the stove burner and begin to heat. Place an extra kettle of water on the stove burner in case extra boiling water is needed to cover the jars in the canner. Make sure water in canner is boiling. Place jars in canning rack, then place rack in canner while water is boiling. Place jars far enough apart to allow for circulation of water around jars. Water should be 1 to 2 inches over the tops of the jars when boiling.
Process for 8 - 10 minutes. Begin timing for processing as soon as the water returns to a rolling boil. however, at higher altitudes (over 1,000 feet) you will need to adjust processing times.
The canner should be covered during processing. The hot boiling water should cover the tops of the jars during the entire processing time.
After processing time is completed, remove hot jars and place on a towel or rack to cool. Keep jars out of drafts. DO NOT tun jars upside down. When jars have cooled, check for sealing.
When you get ready to eat the tomatoes, drain water off tomatoes and roll in flour or whatever you use to roll them in. Fry in hot oil, until brown. This won't take to long, the tomatoes is already cooked, you're just browning them.
Eat and enjoy.

I recently canned green tomato puree using the following method. Is it OK for green tomatoes? Canning Green Tomato Puree Using Quart jars.
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.
Do I take the skins off the green tomatoes before I can them? I want to make chow chow and need to know before I start this. Anyone out there know?
No you don't have to peel green tom. to,can
Can green tomato slices, to be used for frying, also be safely pressure canned?

Years ago a neighbor gave me a recipe for canning green tomatoes. I remember that you salted the sliced green tomatoes along with sliced onions and let them sit overnight.
